Caption Contest: Playwrights vs. Critics Edition

Caption this image and you might win a copy of this year’s Pulitzer-winner “Between Riverside and Crazy” by Stephen Adly Guirgis.

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.

The winner will receive a copy of this year’s Pulitzer-winning play Between Riverside and Crazy by Stephen Adly Guirgis, published by TCG Books (and coming to Broadway beginning Feb. 23, 2016).

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, Dec. 11, at 5 p.m. 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.

Last month’s winner and finalists:

“To trick or to treat; that is the question.
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to smell one’s feet
As penance for sweets less than toothsome,
Or to launch privy paper o’er neighbors’ branchy bushes
And by pranking irk them?
Ay, there’s the shrub.” —Eric Pfeffinger


“We should always walk home from the theater in costume—everyone gives you candy and props!” —yebbasue

“Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Where be your king-sized candy bars? Huh, Yorick?! I already lost one king. You really doing this to me right now?” —Trey
