Bare-Knuckle Theatre Festival Seeks Contenders for its Next Fight Night

web site

Deadline August 26th, 2011

In Roman times, Gladiators (usually prisoners of war) were made to fight to the death against chariots, exotic animals and each other. They fought for their very lives, often losing limbs or ears for the amusement of the Roman masses.

Playwrights, get to know the feeling! The Bare-Knuckle Theatre Festival is back for round three!

Five shows go in, one show comes out on top.

In the spirit of community: companies, organizations and self-producing individuals with original one-act plays are encouraged to submit. It’s a great opportunity to reach new audiences, self-promote, network and bring a little extra cash your way. It's a late-night no-holds-barred theatrical slug-fest and it’s ton of fun.

The Rules

Submit your best 10-20 minute play. After 20 minutes we will fade it to black.

Bring your own cast. We supply a stage manager and event staff.

Bare-knuckle plays require minimal sets (Tables and chairs provided), no major lighting or sound cues. No over-elaborate sets or props

No submission fee, only paying attendees can vote.

Any theme or topic, no casting limitations.

Winner by audience ballot gets 50% of the profits, so bring fans.

Hosted by your well-intentioned friends at the Altruistic Theatre Company.
