Call for Submissions for Full Productions for its second edition

Submission deadline is September 1st, 2019

KIT Italia, The International Theatre and KIT - Kairos ItalyTheater have announced the second edition of OnStage!festival, the Festival of American Theater in Rome, Italy. The festival will run in November 2020, featuring a selection of the best American independent theateron stage in the Italian capital as well as in Milan and Naples. Submissions are now open for its main “Shows” category. The deadline is September 1st, 2019.

OnStage! follows in the successful footsteps of In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY, and mirrors it across the ocean.

OnStage! festival will host fully staged productions of American shows – in English with Italian supertitles – readings of plays by US-based playwrights in translation, and the OnStage! Playwriting Award.

The calendar will also include special events, panels, lectures and master classes to foster the festival’s overall mission of creating a cultural bridge and a meeting point between artists in the United States and Italy.

The festival's first edition in 2019 was a resounding audience and critical success, featuring five shows as well as multiple readings and special events, a partnership with New York's Cherry Lane Theater's Mentor Project, and was extensively highlighted in the Italian press. It ran for 1 week in January 2019, and is having a "reloaded" session in November in Rome, Milan and Naples. The OnStage! award-winning play was published and is currently touring Italy as a semi-staged production.

Submissions are now open for the “Shows” category. This is the main festival category, which will showcase fully staged productions that have been previously mounted in the United States for at least one professional production, but never in Italy. Full productions of any and all theatrical genres may apply – including new plays, musicals, adaptations, revivals, devised and experimental work.

Participants will be self-producing. There are no submission fees and no participation fees.

The submission deadline for this category is September 1st, 2019.

Submissions for both categories are open to all artists who live and work in the United States, and whose work is primarily in English.
