Bricolage Production Company is proud to announce a call for submissions of new full-length plays for its first annual In the Raw Festival, to be held in April/May 2013.

Expanded from Bricolage's ongoing In the Raw series, this year's 5-week festival format will give three playwrights the opportunity to work closely with a dramaturg to revise, explore, and solidify a new work. Each of the selected three plays will receive a week-long workshop with a director, a dramaturg, and professional actors. The workshop will culminate in two public readings at Bricolage Theater in downtown Pittsburgh, followed by audience response sessions.

"Our goal is to celebrate and cultivate new plays by local playwrights, incubate talent in our region, deepen our relationships with local artists, and expose our audience to the process of play development," say Tami Dixon, Bricolage's producing artistic director.

Eligible submissions must meet the following criteria:
  • The work must be unpublished
  • The work must not have been professionally produced, including pending professional productions
  • The work must have an anticipated run time between 90 and 120 minutes
  • The work must require no more than 6 actors (doubling is permitted)
  • Submission deadline is February 25, 2013. 
  • Winner announcements will happen the week of March 4, 2013
  • Eligible submissions must include the following:
  • Synopsis of the play (300 words or less)
  • Description of how the playwright feels that this script would benefit from the workshop/revision process (300 words or less)
