Caption Contest: Wet Paint Edition (November 2014)

Caption this image and win a free hardback copy of “The Flick” by Annie Baker.

Every month, American Theatre wants YOUR input. We post up a new cartoon and you, readers, are invited to write a caption to it. This month’s cartoon is the art show you see above.

The winner of this month’s caption contest will receive a free hardback copy of The Flick, by Annie Baker (which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for drama). Caption finalists will get a shout-out online.

Winner and finalists will be notified by e-mail. To enter into the contest,  leave your captions in the comments below.*

The contest will close on Friday, November 14 at 5 pm EST.

*Please note, you can use a number of social media accounts to log in and comment. But please remember that whichever social media account you decide to use to comment should have a working e-mail address attached to it. We don’t want you to miss out on your free book!
