The Douglas Morrisson Theatre in Hayward is accepting submissions

web site

The Douglas Morrisson Theatre in Hayward is accepting submissions for its second annual Playwrights CageMatch! Our CageMatch is a chance for playwrights to show their stuff in an audience-decided live competition!

Five Playwrights enter but only one will emerge victorious! Grand prize for the chosen script.

We are seeking brief scenes (5-20 minutes) which conform to the limitations of the competition. DMT staff will select the top five submissions. Each of the final scripts will get one rehearsal with the same director and company of actors.  On June 10th  the five scenes will be performed at a live staged reading event at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre. The audience will vote by token to determine the winner!

Our theme this year is: THE KEYS TO THE HOTEL BARBARY. The setting is a ramshackle basement hotel room in the fictional “Hotel Barbary” of San Francisco. Time period is not restricted. Please limit your scenes to no more than four characters. We’re looking for creative and elegant back-stories that incorporate the setting into the scenes. Tone, theme or genre is up to you! Futuristic sci-fi dystopia? Turn of the century romance? Modern-day holiday? All are welcome at the Hotel Barbary!
Admission to the performance is free, but a token to vote for the winner is $5.

Deadline extended for scene submissions sent via e-mail is May 27, 2013; post-mark deadline, if mailed, is May 24, 2013. 
Submissions can be e-mailed in *.doc or *.pdf to cagematch@dmtonline.org or mailed to:
