2015 0ne Act Play Competition Winner
The winner of the 2015 One Act Play Competition is Rubbas by Steve Karp.
Based on a true story, Rubbas tells the story of a little known, but important Alabama condom manufacturing company that has been the primary supplier of condoms to the U.S. government’s Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.). When the Agency learns it can buy its condoms at a far cheaper price from China, it puts Alabama’s powerful U.S. Senator in conflict with his own largely evangelical constituency, and ultimately, the condom program director of the Agency.
Congratulations, Mr. Karp!
