STRONGBOX in the PARK Festival


Deadline: March 1, 2022

Strongbox Theater in East Rockaway, New York, www.strongboxtheater.com, seeks submissions for our "STRONGBOX in the PARK" short play festival. This outdoor, free or pay what you wish, event will feature 6-7 short plays performed over three weekends this summer by a professional team of actors and theater makers.

Submitted plays should be no longer than 20 pages in length and be original, unpublished works (it is fine if the script has been produced previously). Scripts with large casts are acceptable, as are monologue shows. Comedies or plays with lighter tones are encouraged, but plays of any genre or tone will be accepted and seriously considered. Playwrights from communities underrepresented in the theater field are strongly encouraged to apply and submissions from anywhere will be accepted. 

Only one play per playwright please.

A panel of professional directors, playwrights, and producers will select up to 7 plays to produce in the festival.

Each selected play will receive 9 performances, weather permitting, July 22 - August 7, in East Rockaway, New York.

Submissions can be sent via email to info@strongboxtheater.com. Submissions must include a title page with the playwright's name, contact information, as well as a resume. We will accept submissions through March 1st. Playwrights will be awarded a $75 honorarium if their play is selected.

The festival is creatively coordinated by Sam Hood Adrain, Kevin Delano, and Cameron J. Marcotte.

About Strongbox Theater:
We are currently in the construction phase of repurposing and old bank and office space into a 6,000 sq. foot arts complex featuring a 1500 sq. foot black box theater, a bar, and an art gallery. Our mission is to create a new audience of theater goers and be a pillar of the Long Island arts community. We believe we will build a strong sense of community as people gather to consume art, both performing and visual, at our venue.
