Call for Submissions to the second annual BUA Takes 10: LGBT Short Stories evening of ten-minute plays

web site

Submission Dates: Now through January 31, 2013

Call for Submissions to the second annual BUA Takes 10: LGBT Short Stories evening of ten-minute plays.  BUA Takes 10 will run four weekends beginning June 22, 2013, at Buffalo United Artists, 119 W Chippewa St, Buffalo, NY 14202.

Submission Guidelines:

*Please review and follow guidelines. We’re more apt to take a play seriously when it’s clear that the playwright has taken us seriously.

*All plays must have an LGBT theme that is central to the play’s premise.

*Playwrights may submit no more than two plays.

*Please don’t resubmit plays that were submitted last year.

*All plays must be no longer than ten minutes, which may actually be fewer than ten pages. If you’re not sure, please read it aloud.  No exceptions, no matter how brilliant the extra minutes may be. We mean it.

*All plays must have minimal set requirements. Plays chosen will receive full productions at BUA’s black box theater, but as there will be ten plays being performed, there will be no time for elaborate set changes.

*Please email ten-minute plays with minimal set requirements to buasubmissions@gmail.com in standard format in Word or PDF.

*Important: subject line should have your name and title of the play, e.g. BROWN/MY GAY PLAY.

*Body of email should contain contact information (including email and phone) and the play’s production history ONLY. You don’t have to write a cover letter, so seriously, please don’t.

*Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered.

 The Deadline:

Submissions must be received by January 31, 2013. We prefer earlier to later, as we’ll be reading and culling as the submissions come in.

You will receive a confirmation email when we receive your play. Finalists will be notified by email by April 30. We are sorry we cannot respond to each individual playwright.

The Producer:

Buffalo United Artists will provide directors, actors, designers, and technical crew for the run of the show.  If necessary, directors will contact playwrights at the beginning of the rehearsal process.  For more information about Buffalo United Artists, please visit our Web site: http://www.buffalobua.org. Dates are tentatively set for June 22-July 13, but are subject to change.

The Production:

The final ten plays will be presented together as an evening of theatre.  All ten shows run each night. Each chosen playwright will receive four complimentary tickets to be used any night of the run, as well as a minimum $20 royalty (and, if in attendance, a drink after the show).

If you have questions, please contact buasubmissions@gmail.com

 We look forward to reading your work!
