A Pie, A Pint, A Play: A New Works Cabaret

web site

The Majestic Theatre in Corvallis Oregon is calling for submissions from playwrights for new one act short plays, ten to twenty minutes in length which will be presented in a two week festival called “A Pie, A Pint, A Play” running June 7 – 17th in The Majestic Lab.

Works selected for production will receive 30+ hours of rehearsal and 7 performances in our 50 seat black box laboratory space. The plays will be directed and performed by local theatre artists from Corvallis and surrounding region.

We are seeking contemporary short plays that are well suited to a low-fi guerilla style production treatment that emphasizes acting, story and ideas above spectacle or gimmicks.

The festival will only consider pieces with casts of 8 or less.

A total of 8 – 10 works will be selected for the program.

Plays will be reviewed by a five person panel led by Dan Stone, Theatre Director of Linn-Benton Community College and Willow Norton, who has worked in new play development at Abingdon Theatre Company, HERE Arts Center, Culture Project, and The Builders Association.

There are no fees to apply.

Playwrights who have work selected for the program will receive $25, two complimentary tickets to the performance, a video clip of their piece and a post play digital and physical packet that will include press and promotional materials from the festival.
