TEDxAsburyPark seeking short original plays


Deadline: January 20, 2022

In its 10th season, TEDxAsburyPark is broadening its commitment to ideas by seeking short original plays to be produced and directed at the Two River Theater Red Bank NJ as part of the April 30, 2022 TEDxAsburyPark all-day production of Joy.

JOY is the theme. Any aspect of Joy is fair game. Bliss, ecstasy, happiness, contentment, sensuality, altered awareness, consciousness, mindfulness, loss of joy, anti-joy. Plays must have a running time of less than 15 minutes, involve a small cast and be suitable for a simple stage production. As a lab, our directed and rehearsed productions will involve the playwright, and all sessions, including the final production, will be recorded.

Submissions link is here:

The final production will be offered to a live online audience where we typically host 200-800 attendees, to be followed by a panel discussion with the playwright, director and cast. 

The final production will be hosted on our YouTube channel, which has had over 6 million views. If selected, the playwright will grant a limited use license of the recorded work to be hosted on YouTube, with links to our social media, and at our option, to be produced for a live audience by TEDxAsburyPark and its affiliates. Casting will be an open call with director, and the playwright is free to invite actors as part of the process.

 Important: We can only review small cast plays between 10 and 20 minutes in length. 

Submissions will be evaluated on originality, an idea worth spreading, language, and suitability for virtual production

With appreciation of your work, Brian Smiga, John Orefice, and the TEDxAsburyPark team more info:
