What if my work is accepted?
Upon acceptance you will be sent a packet containing an information sheet and contract that must be returned within two weeks with your Performance Security Deposit to reserve your place in the Festival. All plans other than Plan A must pay a Security Deposit of $100 which is fully refundable after the Festival and fulfillment of the performance contract. If the deposit presents a special problem, please notify Fresh Fruit.

What is the Performance Schedule and when is it set?
Full length works will be scheduled for at least 4 performances; and solo or shorter works for a minimum of two performances. Work that attracts excitement and audience energy may be extended. Films will be scheduled for one or two evenings. The Festival schedule will be fixed by early May, with performances in mid-July.
