Two Muses Theatre of West Bloomfield is excited to announce the return of its wildly successful Women’s Playwriting Festival. After delighting packed houses last year, we are thrilled to bring the festival back and are looking for more wonderful plays by female writers.
This year the festival will be limited to 10 minute plays. Ten minutes is not a suggestion, but a requirement. Please note plays that run over ten minutes will be edited by our resident dramaturge if necessary. Conversations will be made to confirm edits, but it is highly encouraged that you read your play aloud with friends and time it.
Playwrights will not receive compensation but they will receive a fully staged, off -book production directed by a local female director. Audiences and judges will also vote on awards which will be mailed to winning playwrights. There is an option to have audience, director, and actor feedback if desired.
Plays will be performed January 22-24, 2016 at Two Muses Theatre in West Bloomfield, MI. Attendance is not required, but recommended for those interested in seeing their work staged by working actors and directors.
FOLLOW DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY. SCRIPTS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS MAY BE OMITTED.
To submit: Please email the project manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title the email: Women’s Play Fest: (Author’s Last Name, Play Title). In the body of the email please include your name, address, phone number and a brief but detailed synopsis of the play. Please attach the script as a PDF or Word Doc.
Deadline to submit is Sept 14, 2015 at 11:59pm.
Winners will be notified sometime in October. Please note that our festival staff is small so confirmation emails may take some time to go out. We appreciate your patience. Please visit www.TwoMusesTheatre.org for more info about our theatre.
