DMT Playwriting Cage Match

web site

We are now accepting submissions for our first Playwriting Cagematch! Five playwrights enter, but only one will emerge victorious and receive a grand prize!

We are seeking brief scenes (5-20 minutes) set at the fictional "Hairless Raccoon Saloon," an out-of-the-way, hole-in-the-wall, dive bar somewhere in northern Mississippi. Will two lovers meet for an illicit tryst? Old enemies accidentally reunite? Will crimes be hatched? It's all up to you—anything can come through the doors at the Hairless Raccoon, but please limit your scenes to no more than four characters.

DMT staff will select the top five submissions. Then, on July 2, 2012, the five scenes will compete at a live staged reading event at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre, complete with drinks and refreshments. Each of the five submissions will get a brief rehearsal. The audience will vote to determine the winner. The event will be free to attend but $5 to vote!
The deadline for emailed submissions is June 18, 2012. 

You can email it as a DOC or PDF to seva[AT]dmtonline.org. Or you can mail a hard copy (postmarked by June 15, 2012) to:

H.A.R.D./ Douglas Morrisson Theatre
Attn: Susan E. Evans
1099 E Street
Hayward, CA 94541

We look forward to reading your submission!
