web site

NOTE: We recommend the playwright reside in the Greater Denver area or be able to travel to the area for rehearsals as needed if selected.

Deadline for 2013 Plays in Progress Series is November 1, 2012.
Athena Project--located in Denver, Colorado--is proud to announce the call for submissions for its Plays in Progress Series (PIP Series). This series will take place in Denver at The Aurora Fox Studio Theatre over the course of 2 weeks, March 15-31, 2013, as part of a larger arts festival, including the World Premiere of Tell Martha Not to Moan by Clinnesha Sibley, winner of this summer's PIP Series. Four new plays will be selected based on a blind submission process and given a dramaturg, director, cast and workshop level production. One play from the PIP Series will win a full production in March of 2014 based on a combination of a panel of judges and audience vote. Scripts are being accepted from now until midnight, November 1, 2012.

Submission Guidelines are as follows:
1. Playwright must be female and may only submit ONE full-length script.
2. The play must not have ever had a fully mounted production. Prior workshop presentations are okay, but the script must be a new version since the time of the workshop.
3. Submission must include:
      a. Full copy of script (without playwright contact info*)
      b. Character breakdown (without playwright contact info*)
      c. Short synopsis of script (300 word limit, without playwright contact info*)
      d. Resume
      e. Cover letter addressing what the playwright would like to accomplish with the workshop presentation and how she heard about the call for submissions

*Contact info must be listed ONLY on resume and cover letter, not on script or any other documents (submissions will be read blind). All documents should include the Title of the Play, but no playwright contact information.

4. Plays submitted without all supporting materials included will be disqualified.
5. We recommend the playwright reside in the Greater Denver area or be able to travel to the area for rehearsals as needed if selected, and for at least one workshop production performance at their own expense. We will be selecting 2 local playwrights and 2 non-local playwrights to participate in the PIP Series. Exact rehearsal and performance schedules will be worked out with the director, dramaturg, and playwright after all plays are selected.
