An Important Memo from the
International Society of D'ni Dramatists and Thespians

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
"As You Like It" (2.7.143-7)

Ladies and Gentlemen: Without further ado it is my pleasure to announce the International Society of D'ni Dramatists and Thespians! It is also to my immense gratification to also make known our first Script Submission Contest!

The D'LA: ISDDT has issued a proclamation seeking new and original works to tell tales of D'ni new and old. Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your quills! To pen and paper!

We are seeking fresh short works for performance at the D'LA: ISDDT Memorial Theatre, live in DRC approved ages and simulcast publishing at www.dniactivities.org (http://www.dniactivities.org)
As these works are to be performed please consider the range of the actors involved and the sets available for performance; it is recommended that you write to these parameters.

What does all of your hard work and creative perseverance earn you? Aside from the monumental bragging rights of being the first bard of the new exploration? The Czar of Cavern Creativity??

I'm glad you asked! The best script will be the first script performed by the ISDDT with the potential of fame, fortune, wealth beyond imagination and fantabulous prizes*.

Please send all submissions in text format (inline or attached) to InternationalSocietyOfDniDramatistsAndThespians@dn iactivities.org

Thank you for your continued participation and devotion to the D'ni League of Activities!
