The Aurora Theatre Company’s Global Age Project (The GAP) is currently accepting submissions for the 2014 global age project new works series.

The GAP seeks plays that directly respond to issues in our present and possibilities of/for our future. The festival celebrates the diversity of perspectives, styles, voices, concerns, and stories that make up the world today. Plays need not be about science or technology. The GAP does not consider plays that are set in a historical time period, which the GAP define's as prior to the year 2000. We look for work that feels immediate, original, and accomplished.

We do not consider plays that are shorter than 45 minutes / 45 pages. Plays that have already received a professional production are not eligible. Only one submission per writer per year

Submissions will culminate in a four-week festival of staged readings in February of 2014. Four scripts will be selected with the potential of a full production the following season. New York based Playwright Jorge Ignacio Cortinas remarks, "If every development process was run with the sensitivity and courage that the GAP Festival so effortlessly demonstrated, the American theater would be more vibrant, braver, more surprising, more relevant."

The festival takes place in February 2014, and the deadline for submission is July 31st, 2013. Submissions can be made beginning June 3rd. Four playwrights will be chosen to receive a $1,000 award, a public reading of their work on our main stage, as well as travel and housing. The GAP is a paperless organization and collects and reviews all submissions using an Internet based system, accessible on our website. https://www.auroratheatre.org/global-age-project
