R5 Playhouse Series seeks radio plays


Deadline: January 31, 2022 at 11:59pm EST


The theme for the inaugural festival is "consequences."

Playwrights are encouraged to interpret this theme however they please but should submit an original one act radio play that engages with that theme in some way.

Plays should be approximately 30 minutes long (20-30 pages) and feature a cast of 6 actors or less; we are not accepting musical submissions at this time.

Playwrights may submit with a director and cast in mind, but R5 will help you assemble your team.

R5 will collaborate with each selected playwright to produce the one act as a live radio play that will stream for free on YouTube alongside other festival selections.

The R5 Playhouse Series is a wonderful opportunity for playwrights to connect with an audience that loves new work and for us at R5 to welcome new artists into our community!

R5 Productions is a a collective of theatre artists dedicated to telling stories both old and new through performance and design. Check out our catalog of past shows to get a sense of who we are and what we do.

Playwrights are invited to email a brief introduction about you and your play, a PDF of your 20-30 page script, and the names of your desired actors and director (if you have a team in mind) to rproductions2020@gmail.com no later than Monday, January 31 at 11:59pm ET.

Please be sure to include "R5 Playhouse Series" in the subject line. We will cap submissions at 50, so submit early!.Selected plays, playwrights, and teams will be announced by the end of February. We welcome and encourage submissions from artists of all races and ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as artists with disabilities. Email us with any questions you have.
