The SBU Science Playwriting Competition is thrilled to announce this year’s winners. Students, staff, faculty, and members of the general public contributed 10-minute plays with strong components of science and theatricality. The First Prize of $500 goes to Moira Chas, an associate professor of Mathematics at Stony Brook University, for her play “The Mathematical Visions of Alicia.” The Second Prize of $200 goes to Michael Shodell, previously an undergraduate at Stony Brook in mathematics, for his play “A Number of Things” and Third Prize of $100 goes to Colin West, a PhD Candidate at the Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University, for his play “Counting Sheep.” The plays that have received honorable mention are “Entropy” by Paige Borak, a senior Theatre Arts and Psychology major, and “A Planet is Born” by Hillary Bhaskaran, a freelance writer from souther California. Selecting winners in this year’s competition was difficult because of the high quality of many of the entries.
