PROOF OF CONCEPT is a reading series focused on investigative theatre. We are seeking original, unproduced, high quality full-length plays and musicals based on real people, places, and/or events.
Produced by Life Jacket, an award-winning theatre company based in New York City, this reading series will spotlight smart, new, unpredictable works that support the company’s mission of telling real-life stories on stage in visually inventive and lyrically rich ways. Competitively selected submissions will receive one (1) staged reading at the Sheen Center’s Black Box Theater on January 8, 2017. For more information, visit: www.lifejackettheatre.org.
Authors of the chosen submissions are solely responsible for managing all administrative aspects of the staged reading (e.g., assembling their own casts, crews, and production teams as well as coordinating outside rehearsals). Selected submissions will receive a maximum of two (2) hours rehearsal time in the theatre the day of the reading.
