Seeking Script Submissions/Directors for “Better or Worse”

web site

Freshwater Theatre is issuing a call for original scripts and directors for our upcoming fall production, Better or Worse, which will run September 8-22 at Nimbus Theatre in Minneapolis. It will subsequently be non-exclusively published in an anthology.

Our intention with Better or Worse is to examine the ways in which the institution of marriage has shifted and changed, culturally and interpersonally, to suit the needs of the people in the time in which they lived. From a mere financial merger of family wealth, to the peasant partnership model, through the rise of romantically-motivated unions, through interracial marriages to same-sex marriages and beyond, we will put marriage under the microscope to see how it has evolved over the centuries.

Any time period is fair game, as long as the subject matter has influenced the marriage debate in Minnesota or is practiced by Minnesotans daily. We would love to see submissions that speak to personal experiences, family cultures, and the experience of being a minority in Minnesota.

Writers, musicians and performance artists of all types are encouraged to send submissions (PDF preferred) or proposals to submissions@freshwatertheatre.com by June 4, 2012. 

We will consider pieces up to 25 minutes in length.

Interested directors should send their resumes and a brief cover letter to info@freshwatertheatre.com. There will be a small stipend for directors.
