Schreiber's Shorts - call for short plays

web site

Call for plays!

Schreiber's Shorts FREEDOM Short Play Festival – 2015

Schreiber's Shorts: Freedom
This is a call for short plays (10 minutes) that explore freedom. We invite playwrights to consider different manifestations of freedom, including personal, political, religious, historical, romantic, and philosophical. Dramas and comedies are both welcome. We encourage creative interpretations of the idea.

Plays should be in English and submissions from playwrights outside of the US are strongly encouraged.

Sets and costumes should be minimal: rehearsal furniture only, nothing that requires specially built pieces. Props should be those items typically found in an acting studio props closet.

We encourage submissions that make creative use of sound and lighting. Live sound (including Foley sound effects) is/are encouraged, as well as any prerecorded sounds or music you imagine being part of your play. We have a wide variety of lighting instruments available (so specials and practicals are okay), although we do not have moving lights or a follow spot.

Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2014. 
Plays will be produced at the Gloria Maddox Theatre at T. Schreiber Studios in March, 2015.


PLAYS MUST NOT HAVE HAD NEW YORK PRODUCTIONS BEFORE MARCH 2015

By submitting an entry, you are affirming that you are the sole creator of the play, and entitled to confer performance rights. You further affirm that, if your play is chosen, you will grant performance rights, royalty-free, to the T. Schreiber Studio & Theatre for up to twelve performances during its Schreiber's Shorts: Freedom Festival March 2015. The play remains the sole property of the playwright.

There is no fee for submission. 
Please send all scripts in pdf or Word document format to: tschreibertheatre@gmail.com with the heading "Schreiber's Shorts" and the name of your play.
