The Hive Theatre company is seeking submissions for its 2015 Hive Exposed Series

web site

Hive Exposed Series 2015

The goal of the Hive Exposed series is to present staged readings of new and underexposed playwrights and to share the work of those playwrights with the NYC community.

Of all the submissions, The Hive will choose four plays (musicals also accepted) to stage as readings in winter/spring of 2015. Our goal is to choose one of the four selected pieces to later be mounted as a full production.

The Hive is deeply committed to nurturing artists of all ages, type, and background.

2013’s Exposed reading of A Brief History of the Soviet Union by Vladimir Zelevinsky was mounted as part of our 2014 Season. From 2014’s Exposed Series, we plan to produce The Accidental Death of Nelson Fritz by Noah Schechter as part of our 2015 season.

The Hive’s Mission:

DEVISE through collaboration with an emphasis on experimentation. EXPOSE what must be said for those who won’t say it and for those who refuse to hear it. ILLUMINATE our fears because the truth is what scares us the most.

We are committed to:

- Producing original works created from the ground up by the full company, reinventing the classics, and fostering the work of new and underexposed playwrights.

- Providing affordable productions that engage audiences as participants in an immersive theatrical event rather than simply spectators

- Nurturing artists in and around the NYC metro area

- Continuing to demonstrate how theater raises social awareness

- Reaching out to artists, audiences and sponsors in order to enrich and expand our community.
