Southeastern Theatre Conference in partnership with Stage Rights, the licensing company that represents The Marvelous Wonderettes, announces A Singular They by Aliza Goldstein as the winning play of the 2020 Ready to Publish playwriting competition.

While making up for missed classes, an intersex teenager strikes up a rapport with their biology teacher, who provides much-needed validation for their skepticism about surgically "normalizing" their body, and - perhaps dangerously - treats them like an adult.
This touching and illuminating play premiered at the Blank Theatre Company in 2016 receiving glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike. 

A Singular They was named the winner of the Ted Schmitt Award for the World Premiere of an Outstanding New Play by the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle in 2017 and the Ebell of Los Angeles Playwright Prize in 2015.
