JUNE 14, 2011 THE EYES OF BABYLON NATIONAL MULTI-GENRE WRITING CONTEST Prize: $1000

THE EYES OF BABYLON NATIONAL MULTI-GENRE WRITING CONTEST


The producers of The Eyes of Babylon have launched a national writing contest to promote the play's Off-Broadway run, June 14th?July 3rd, 2011 in NYC

The Eyes of Babylon presents the true story of playwright and performer Jeff Key, who joined the Marines in 2001 as a 34-year-old gay man. Key transforms the pages of his Iraq journal into a stunning, raw, funny and indelible solo performance about going
to battle, being gay in the military, and finding peace when you are at war with yourself.

CONTEST THEMES
With this contest, we hope to to further explore the play's themes of war, the memory of war, and our individual and collective forgetfulness about being at war. We hope to start a broad social dialogue about how art is both a celebration and a critique of our citizenship, patriotism, love of country, and allegiance to values. The play is as much about the process of searching for answers as finding answers themselves, and contest entries should consider the battles we wage both internally and externally, and the role of writing, creativity, and art in the fight for peace, change, and self-examination.
