Asian Story Theater seeks work from BIPOC playwrights


Deadline: February 1, 2024 Noon PST

A new collaborative theater project is looking for up to 10-minutes or 10 pages from qualifying BIPOC writers. 

At least 10 selected scripts will be featured in an online showcase for directors working with Asian Story Theater, San Diego Black Ensemble, Teatro Máscara Mágica, and additional theaters of color in San Diego, Los Angeles, and the bay area. 

We are looking for SMART and FUNNY material, the more creative the better. Material may include original music, standup, spoken word, screenwriting. Edgy politics are welcome, adult humor, even puppets. 

Pieces selected for this reading will receive $100

There is no fee to apply. 


Include contact info and a short paragraph about yourself.

This showcase is part of the developmental phase of a two-year program to develop new material around a political, social justice issue. Winning writers, and potentially other writers submitting material, may be invited to work adapting one of our stories, themes, or characters, or to propose a relevant story of their own. This showcase is to get our attention by sharing something you’ve done, a glimpse of your style and voice to help us guess what you might do with us going forward.

Thank you for considering this invitation. We look forward to reading your work!
