Bereik en inhoud

Featured in this series are plays written by various playwrights. This series includes 167 plays, some of which were Clauder Competition submissions and winners. Some plays in this collection include related material such as the production program or article and share the same folder. A few plays have won awards by the Boston Globe and Boston Phoenix. The Clauder Competition is a contest for new plays by New England playwrights from states such as Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. As the director for over 10 years, Betsy Carpenter received, reviewed, and provided feedback for a number of plays. The competition awards full production of a play that has not been professional produced and a cash prize. Winners of the competition are included in the collection. Those winners include and are not limited to; Rosanna Yamagiwa Alfaro, Eliza Anderson, Baraba J. Blumenthak, Adam Bock, Constance Congdon, Karen Cronacher, Elizabeth Egloff, Laura Harrington, Melinda Lopez, Brandon Toropov, and Paula Vogel. In some cases, Betsy played a direct role in producing the plays. For instance she co-produced Adam Bock’s Swimming in the Shallows, as well as directed and for David Valdes Greenwood’s Former Friend of Dorothy.

Titles with asterisks denote that additional material like programs, news articles, or correspondences are located in the same folder.


Arranged alphabetically by playwright last name, and then year within each title.
