War of the Words

Cone Man Running Productions is excited to present the next level of audioplay competition. Sixteen playwrights bracketed sweet sixteen-style to go head to head. They have 48 hours to write an original audio play with given parameters. The plays are then recorded and edited and rolled out in their bracketed pairs. The audience then decides who wins each bracket battle by voting at our website at www.conemanrunning.com. Once the winners are selected, they will then go head to head until there is only one playwright left standing! For release schedule, please go to our website at www.conemanrunning.com... Show More
