Accepting Political Play Submissions for Raucous Caucus III

web site

NOTE: there was originally a submission fee required of playwrights located out of Minnesota, but Box Wine Theatre has since changed that policy and now there is no fee for anyone. But some documents still posted online might indicate there is a submission fee. Please ignore those documents - there is no submisison fee.

Box Wine Theatre is accepting script submissions for Raucous Caucus III, Box Wine Theatre's annual 10-minute political play festival. We're looking for scripts that encompass all sides of the political spectrum. Whether you think of yourself as Democrat, Republican, Tea Party, Occupier, or other, Box Wine Theatre wants to hear your voice. This festival is meant to encourage dialogue between opposing views in hopes of letting different political and social beliefs be heard.

In an effort to have as many individual voices involved as possible, playwrights will not have the option of directing their own pieces. We strongly believe in the collaborative process between the playwright and director, so all playwrights and directors will receive each other's contact information and we strongly encourage working together.

Performances will be at Bryant Lake Bowl in January, 2013 with exact dates TBD. Tentative show days are Thursdays with some possible late night Fridays and Saturdays.

Playwrights:- Script submissions will be due no later than 10:00 pm, Wednesday, October 17th.
- Playwrights may submit a maximum of two plays.
- There are no restrictions to the scripts’ subject matter as long as the play gives political/social commentary.

-Scripts should be no longer than 12 pages. (Keep in mind, 1 page of dialogue usually equals 1 minute of stage time.) Plays should not exceed 10 minutes.

-There will be two rounds in the script selection process: The 1st round will be headed by company members of Box Wine Theatre. The 2nd round will be based on choices of the directors. Playwrights will be notified of the final outcome of the selection process by November 8th.
Submit all manuscripts, resumes, and cover letters to artistic director, Bethany Simmons at info@boxwinetheatre.com with "script submission" in the subject line of the email. In the body of the email, please include your name, email address, and phone number.

**PDF or Microsoft Word documents preferred, please. **
