The Overtime Theater 2022 WokeFEST

Website

Deadline: July 23, 2022  

The Overtime Theater in San Antonio, Texas is seeking new works from playwrights for WokeFEST, a showcase of progressive, activist, and political plays. The chosen play will be given a staged reading or a staged production August 5-27, 2022 at the Overtime Theater. The script submissions window is open from April 26, 2022 until 11:59 p.m. July 23, 2022. 

In light of Covid-19 protocols, the Overtime Theater is seeking plays that require one to five actors. Previously unproduced full-length and one-act plays are welcome, as well as longform monologues. The chosen play (or plays) will be given two rehearsals and one staged reading, which includes an audience feedback session or a fully staged production. 

The purpose of this program is to give new and seasoned playwrights an opportunity to further develop new works. 

Devoted to producing new and original work, the Overtime is particularly interested in bold, innovative plays from across the progressive, political, and activist spectrum that are both provocative and entertaining. 

 For environmental reasons, the Overtime Theater is unable to accept script submissions delivered by mail or in person. Only submissions in a Word document or PDF will be considered. Applicants should use the title of the play as the name of the document, followed by the full name of the playwright. Cover letters should include a synopsis. One play per applicant. The Overtime accepts submissions from writers based in the U.S. or Canada.

 The Overtime Theater, an all-volunteer organization, compensates playwrights with one equal share of donations to our tip jar at the end of the play’s presentation. 

Submissions should be sent to submissions@theovertimetheater.org. Attn: Jade Esteban Estrada, artistic director. Deadline is 11:59 p.m. July 23, 2022.
