Penn State Abington seeks one-act & full-length plays from local playwrights

web site

I am the theatre Artist-in-Residence at Penn State Abington. I am creating a new play reading series at the Penn State Abington campus site. I am looking for never-produced plays by local (PA/NJ/DE/NY) playwrights.

Plays can be full length or one-acts.

One play per playwright, please.

Stipend: there will be a stipend paid to each playwright who’s play is produced in this reading series. We are currently working with the school to get an exact amount for playwrights. However, we know that there will be a single stipend and that, if you wish to attend the reading and/or rehearsals, you will need to cover your own transportation.

Selected playwrights are invited and encouraged to be part of the rehearsal process before each reading.

Plays will be read by both professional actors and student actors from Penn State Abington.

Plays about these issues/topics are sought:
  • Indigenous vs Colonial Culture
  • Mass Incarceration
  • Immigration
  • Sustainability
  • Opioid Addiction
  • Educational Equity

Please send a short synopsis and PDFs (only) of your play to: mtp24@psu.edu

Deadline: October 15, 2018

Playwrights will be notified by email of receipt of materials.
