The Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City is currently accepting applications for the 2012-2013 Harold Clurman Playwright-in-Residence.

Only playwrights in their early careers, who have not yet had professional productions other than those using the showcase code are encouraged to apply. Also, applicants must not be enrolled in any playwriting program during the residency period. This is a collaborative residency that is mutually beneficial to the mission of Stella Adler Studio and the Playwright. Resident playwrights are encouraged to attend regularly Undergraduate and Conservatory students’ and Lab Theatre’s performances and cultural events at the Studio, and in so doing contribute to the artistic and cultural life of the Stella Adler Studio. Residencies typically begin in September and culminate in a showcase production of a new play in June. Resident playwrights receive a $1000 stipend and have access to the Studio’s space, members of the Clurman Lab Theatre Company, and student actors for readings and workshops.

Completed applications must include a required application form, a full-length, polished but unpublished play (A full-length play is one that constitutes a full evening of theater; a 90-minute one act play is acceptable); a statement of objectives of no more than a page discussing how you would benefit from a collaborative residency with the Stella Adler Studio; and a brief biography emphasizing your history as a playwright. Playwrights must read and agree to the Letter of Agreement on the Stella Adler website before applying. By applying for this residency, playwrights confirm that they have read and agree to the Letter of Agreement. (see web site for Letter of Agreement.)

Completed applications must be received by April 30, 2012.

Send complete applications to: Peter Nickowitz, Playwrights Division, The Stella Adler Studio, 31 West 27th Street, New York, New York 10001. Additional information on the Stella Adler Studio and the Harold Clurman Playwrights Division can be found on our website.
