Call for Submissions to BUA’s inaugural Festival of Ten-Minute Plays

web site

Submission Dates: Now through March 31, 2012

Call for Submissions to BUA’s inaugural Festival of Ten-Minute Plays (we’re still trying to come up with a cool name), sponsored by Buffalo United Artists Theatre in Buffalo, New York.  The three-day festival is tentatively scheduled for June 29, June 30, and July 1, 2012, and will be held at Buffalo United Artists, at  119 W Chippewa St, Buffalo, NY 14202.   

The Submissions:

*All plays must have an LGBT theme that is central to the play’s premise.

*All plays must be no longer than ten minutes. If you’re not sure, please read it aloud.  No exceptions, no matter how brilliant the extra minutes may be.

*All plays must have minimal set requirements. Plays chosen will get full productions at BUA’s black box theater, but as there will be eight to ten plays being performed, there will be no time for elaborate set changes.

*Please email ten-minute plays with minimal set requirements to buasubmissions@gmail.com in standard format (Courier or 12 pt font) in Word or PDF.

*Subject line should have your name and title of the play, e.g. BROWN/MY GAY PLAY.

*Body of email should contain contact information (including email and phone) and the play’s production history only (yay! You don’t have to write a cover letter!).

 The Deadline:

Submissions must be received by March 31, 2012. We prefer earlier to later, as we’ll be reading and culling as the submissions come in.

You will receive a confirmation email when we receive your play. Finalists will be notified by email by April 30. We are sorry we cannot respond to each individual playwright.

The Producer:

Buffalo United Artists will provide directors, actors, designers, and technical crew for the festival.  If necessary, the directors will contact the playwrights at the beginning of the rehearsal process.  For more information about Buffalo United Artists, please visit our Web site: http://www.buffalobua.org. Dates are tentatively set for June 29-July 1, 2012, but are subject to change.

The Production:

The eight to ten plays will be presented together as an evening of theatre.  All ten shows run each night. Production is the compensation for this festival. As it is volunteer run, there will be no financial compensation.

If you have questions, please contact buasubmissions@gmail.com

 Looking forward to reading your work!
