For the 9th year, the J is collaborating with the Jewish Plays Project to present the Annual Northern Virginia Jewish Playwriting Contest. Come VOTE  to determine which of these three plays will be the TOP JEWISH PLAY of 2024!

At the event, each of the three plays is introduced by off-Broadway director, Illana Stein, and by a video from each playwright, then 20-minute excerpts are read by a group of stellar DC-area actors. The audience then votes to determine which of these three plays will be the TOP JEWISH PLAY of 2024!
