I've written a play. What should I do with it?

After having written many one-acts in college, I've just completed my first full-length play. A staged reading was just held, and the play was very well-received. Unfortunately, the actors--university students--won't be available to turn the reading into a proper production any time soon.
I've spent most of my time writing fiction, so I don't have much of a relationship with local or remote theatre groups or the like.
I am quite happy with the play, and would love to see it staged somewhere. I'd also like to send it into any playwriting competitions or new works festivals to which it might apply. Any suggestions?
If it matters, the piece is in an absurdist vein; was described by the reading's director as 'Sam Shepard meets Samuel Beckett.' Also, in case it makes a difference, I am an American currently residing in England.
