Caption Contest: The Intermission Edition (March 2015)

Caption this month’s image and win a copy of Donald Margulies’ “The Country House.”

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 are the out-of-this-world specimans above.

This month’s winner will receive a copy of The Country House by Pulitzer-winning playwright Donald Margulies.

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 Monday, March 30 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 should have a working e-mail address attached to it. We don’t want you to miss out on your free book!

*In a modification to an earlier rule (which we admit was a bit harsh), you cannot win two contests in a row.

    He missed the entire Act One, and I don’t think Godot is going to make it in time for Act 2 either

  • I probably should have just had water……I didn’t reach my steps goal for the day.

  • Michael Detroit

    I wish the first act had been that long…

    Here’s to hoping these will make the second half better than the first.

    I pre-ordered our drinks before the show started.

  • ‘My whole life is an intermission’

  • Chip Egan

    You and I are so Stanley McCandless.
