Caption Contest: Box Office Edition

Caption this image and win a copy of ‘Ballyturk’ by Enda Walsh.

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 above.

This month’s winner will receive a copy of Ballyturk by Enda Walsh.

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

The contest will close on Friday, April 24 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 about only being able to win the contest once ever (a bit harsh, perhaps), you cannot win two consecutive contests, but you can keep competing after that.

    I don’t care that you need to save the city from imminent destruction. There are no refunds or exchanges.

    I’m sorry. I see that you are superheroes, but Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark closed ages ago.

  • Kyle Eric Bradford

    Nothing could harm Jennifer, not in her fortress of solitude.

    I think you might be taking the fourth wall a bit too seriously.
