Priscilla Davies' "The Power of Three" Takes Gold

Grand Prize Winner Priscilla Davies


Priscilla Davies’ Romantic-Comedy THE POWER OF THREE took top honors at the Fresh Voices Screenplay Competition it was announced this week, scooping up the 1st place in the Comedy/ Romantic-Comedy Genre and the Grand Prize Award.  

A graduate of the New Jersey School of Dramatic Arts acting program, Priscilla toiled as an elementary school teacher in New Jersey before chasing her dreams as an actress and moving to Los Angeles nearly ten years ago.

It was a daring move that proved prescient. Priscilla has worked on several TV series including HBO’s EUPHORIA and the Netflix show THE FIX, as well as national commercials for McDonalds, Uber and Volkswagon. She is currently recognized for her comedy improv work at Hollywood’s Second City and Upright Citizen’s Brigade. 

Selected from nearly 1,400 screenplays, THE POWER THREE is a timely tale of millennial dating in the 21st century. When Lexi can’t get the man of her dreams to commit to their relationship, her close friend introduces her to a dating technique called the Power of Three. Armed with a newfound confidence in her dating life, Lexi ventures out into the dating world to discover that love is not always in the shape that you want or are expecting, but will sometimes find you in less expected forms.

Chairman of the Competition, Joel Mendoza, commented, “This is wonderfully written script full of accessible characters that are true to life and dialogue that is so fun and easy to read that you really want to spend more time with these characters than the script allows. It’s been cold and rainy in Los Angeles this past week, and we’re all locked in our homes gripped with fear and anxiety during the pandemic, so to be able to sit down and read a script that offers so much fun and so much light was a wonderful reprieve. This is one of those scripts that immediately comes to life as you read, and you can so easily see it playing to a receptive audience. It feels really good to discover a piece of material like this. It has all the hallmarks of successful script, and Priscilla clearly has the talent to deliver.”

On accepting her award and the $3000 Grand Prize, Priscilla remarked, “This is such exciting news and really couldn’t come at a better time. As a teacher and tutor, the last few weeks have been hard under the stay at home orders to say the least. I’m locked in the house, but I’m literally running laps around the room in excitement right now!”
