The Miranda Family Foundation Voces Latinx National Playwriting Competition

web site

DEADLINE: Monday, February 1, 2021 (Timestamped)

More Info: www.repertorio.nyc/opportunities

The Latinx/Hispanic Community represents many nations and every corner of the United States. By the mid-21st Century, 1 in 3 people will identify as having raíces Latinx (Latin roots). We have journeys and histories that need to be heard and experienced on stage. The goals of The Miranda Family Foundation Voces Latinx National Playwriting Competition are to discover, develop, promote and amplify Latinx plays and playwrights. Repertorio Español is now in its 53rd season and 2nd decade of championing new works through playwriting initiatives. To that end, this competition and our theatre will prepare the way for an American Theatre that is reflective and representative of the Pan Latinx Community. An endeavor that becomes increasingly more important.

QUALIFICATIONS
  • Latinx culture, history, ideals and characters must be central to the play submitted. The community must be accurately depicted and the focus of the work.
  • No screenplays, one act plays, adaptations or translations will be accepted.
  • New and un-produced plays preferred. Plays that have had readings or a workshop production are acceptable.
  • All plays must be original and full-length (minimum running time: 75 minutes) and can be written in Spanish and/or English.
  • The competition is inclusive of all playwrights who are at least 18 years of age and residents of the United States or Puerto Rico.
