Theatre Odyssey Announces One-Act Play Winners



Theatre Odyssey has announced the winner and runner-up of its inaugural One-Act Play Festival open to U.S. playwrights. Tagged by Tampa-based playwright Jim Moss took the top prize, being named “Best Play” and winning $1,000, while Motherless Child by Louisiana-based playwright Peggy Aultman was named “Runner-Up” and received $500. The two winners were chosen from four finalists that were granted full productions at Glenridge Performing Arts Center November 1-4, 2018. The finalists were selected from 12 semi-finalists presented as readings to the public. Over 100 plays from over eighty playwrights in twenty-six states were submitted to the playwriting competition.

Tagged takes place in the near future with a frightening look at technology as a teenage girl agrees to be tagged with an artificially intelligent ankle cuff. Motherless Child is about a 40-something couple who are unable to conceive a child. The wife finds creative fulfillment in a university art class when she finds a jar containing a full-term female fetus in a nearby science lab.
