Entry in the Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition is understood as an indication of the playwright's willingness, in the event of winning, to grant first production rights to Alleyway Theatre. Selection as Winner requires the playwright's prior commitment to grant first production rights under the terms of Alleyway Theatre's Standard Production Agreement (additional terms will not be negotiated).
By entering this script into the competition, I am confirming that is has not had a previous professional production.
I further agree that I am submitting no more than 1 script per category per submission year.
