Winners of Stage West’s third annual Texas Playwriting Competition were announced today, and the judges couldn’t pick between two scripts – “Binge” by Waco’s Thomas Ward and “Certificate of Death” by Arlington’s Walter Wykes. Both plays bagged the top prize. “Hopelessly Puccini” by the late and much beloved Dallas playwright Steve Lovett took the runner-up spot. All three will get a professional staged reading during a “new works” festival scheduled for May of next year at Stage West. Congrats to all!
