The Sauk (Jonesville Michigan) is currently seeking entries to consider for our 2018 Plays-In-Development. We are seeking unproduced plays. These can be any style (comedy, drama, children's play and/or musical) and any length (one-act or full-length). A completed draft of the play must be submitted. It is understood that changes can be made to the script between initial submission and performance.
The goal of Plays-in-Development is help playwrights continue to develop plays that have yet to be produced. By working with a director and actors, the playwright can learn vital information about their work. After the public readings, playwrights are able to participate in a talkback with the audience. We want playwrights to leave the experience with positive and constructive feedback to improve their plays.
Selected playwrights will be asked to be involved in the Plays-in-Development process. The plays will first go through notes with the executive director in early 2018. A director will then be assigned to each play and work with the playwright prior to an audition draft being submitted. Auditions will take place in early June with two weeks of rehearsals prior to public readings. Playwrights are encouraged to make changes to their scripts throughout the rehearsal process (often handing in new drafts on a weekly or even daily basis). The public staged readings will take place on June 29 and 30, 2018. A royalty is provided to the selected playwrights and The Sauk is seeking funding to help pay travel expenses to and from The Sauk for performances.
Draft copies of scripts can be sent to Executive Director Trinity Bird at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. on Friday, October 6, 2017.
The play selection committee will review all submissions and select the scripts to be part of the process. For more information, contact the e-mail above.
We never post calls for submissions that require a submission fee. Learn more here.
