For the first live round, the sixteen competing playwrights were given two cues — a woman of a certain age (over thirty, mid-thirties or teenaged) and Paris — and asked to craft a three-minute monologue. Six contestants were booted from the competition after a panel and audience members voted; the rest will moved on to subsequent competitions. The month-long contest culminates with a live finale tonight at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse, 1260 22nd Street.
For tickets for tonight’s denouement, $12, go to horseandcart.co, where you can also follow the PlayOffs action via wacky video and audio updates on YouTube.
