Seeking 20 minute plays

Facebook Page

INITIATIVE DESCRIPTION: Durango Lively Arts Company (DLAC) is currently accepting submissions for its “Farm to Stage’ play development initiative for playwrights at all career stages. The initial reading round determines the guidelines have been followed. The second reading provides “notes” to the playwrights remaining and selects works to participate with the DLAC assigned Director and Actors in the staged reading round. The staged reading round is where the participants in the workshop round are selected. Following the workshop round the selected pieces will receive a full production. Playwrights participate in each round their work is included. Personal expenses related to participating in the initiative are the responsibility of the playwright. The playwrights of the pieces selected for production will receive a small royalty for each presentation of their work to a paying audience. Playwrights retain all rights to their work. DLAC does request recognition as a participant in the development of the work in subsequent productions. Participation by Southwest Colorado playwrights is especially encouraged.

THEME: The theme of the 2016 initiative is “Crossroads Café” and material submitted should address a crossroad or life changing event for one or more character. The works will be presented on a set depicting a remote Southwestern United States roadside café.

LENGTH: Twenty-minute or less short plays and excerpts of longer works will be accepted. Maximum number of pages accepted, not including title pages, is eighteen. Note: A word count not exceeding 3,400 should meet the length requirements.

FEE: No submission fee

FORMAT: Please use a standard play format such as the sample presented at “Samuel French Formatting Guide”. Playwright’s name, address, phone number, email address and a brief biography are to be on the title page ONLY.
