Caption Contest: Bystander Edition

Play this month’s Caption Contest and win a copy of ‘Choir Boy’ by Tarell Alvin McCraney.

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 Choir Boy by Tarell Alvin McCraney, published by TCG Books.

Winner and finalists will be notified by e-mail. To enter the contest,  please fill out the form below.*

The contest will close on Friday, Jan. 29, at 5 p.m. EST.

This contest is now closed.

*Participants cannot win two consecutive contests, but are encouraged to keep competing after that.
*In a modification to earlier Caption Contests, all entries are now privately submitted.

Due to the holiday season, we suspended the Caption Contest for a month. Below are the winner and finalists from our November contest.
