This Round’s on Us: Love and Civil Rights

web site

Submissions requested for Nylon Fusion Theatre Company's first quarterly short play festival for 2014, "This Round’s on Us: Love and Civil Rights." Plays should not be longer than 10 pages and/or minutes. Casts no larger than four and minimal props and costumes. Sorry, no musicals.

The premise is up to you, but all plays must be somewhat thematically linked to love, or the lack of it, and/or civil rights. Original and never been produced before works only.

Authors agree to permit Nylon Fusion to produce their submitted play if the company wishes to do so. The company is responsible for all aspects of production including selecting a director and casting. The author will retain full copyright and ownership of their play. Participation in the rehearsal process may be requested, therefore residence in the NYC metropolitan area is prefered but not will not be a factor in the selection process. Authors must be available via email/phone. Performances will be in NYC. No pay.

Please send a short cover letter with contact information and the full script with title and author’s name on each page in PDF to Kyle DeSpiegler at nylonsubmissions@gmail.com with SUBJECT LINE: This Round's On Us: Love and Civil Rights: [NAME OF PLAYWRIGHT.]

Deadline: December 26th, 2013

*Our festivals are each linked to a holiday- please note that we accept plays with similar themes as before: Valentine’s, April Fools, Independence and Halloween even though we have changed the name of the festivals. We look for plays approximately 10-minutes in length either directly or indirectly linked to each holiday or some related themes--respectively: love / hate / rights / justice, mischief / deceit / surprise / renewal / rebirth / spring time,  independence / dependence / patriotism / freedom / being trapped or imprisoned, and fear / disguises / All Saints / All Souls / Dia de los Muertos. While the writer should be concerned with the theme in their submissions, the categories are fairly broad and there is no need to be overt and obvious in working them into the script. We will select and arrange the plays so that they work best together. Please, don’t send us any 1-2 page plays or anything over 20 pages.
