Open Call: New Plays from the World

web site

Milano Playwriting Festival and its producer It’s Time Produzioni Srls are looking for new plays from across the globe. The selected plays will be presented as reading/mise en espace/staging during Milano Playwriting Festival, March 31 – April 2, 2017. If an agreement between the parts is reached, It’s Time Produzioni Srls will also act as literary agent by presenting the plays to Italian and foreign artistic directors / producers.

The submitted play needs to be recently written and possibly never staged before. We are not interested in monologues. There are no script-length, subject or playwright’s age limits.

All applications need to be sent to : info@milanoplaywritingfestival.it with the following subject: “New Play World 2017 – Playwright’s Surname and Name – Play’s Title” (example: “New Play World 2017 – Smith John – The game ”).

The email needs to have attached:
The full play.
  • Logline: 6 lines maximum that summarise the core of the story and highlight its originality.
  • The playwright’s phone number.
  • The playwright’s CV
  • If the play has already received or will received before April 2017 a reading/mise en espace/staging, please let us know where and when.
Deadline to send the play: 9th of October 2017
An answer will be given once the material has been received. In case of interest we will get back to you by the 9th of November 2016.

We take extremely seriously copyright issues: the material received will only be read by Milano Playwriting Festival’s artistic director and not shared with anyone else without the prior consent of the author or his legal representative.

The files (play, information required and CV) need to be sent in English, Italian or French language. Italian playwrights that has already submitted a play for the previous 2017 Open Call (see here) don’t need to send the play twice.
