PlayPenn New Play Development Conference 2020

web site

Beginning September 1, PlayPenn will be accepting applications for its 2020 New Play Development Conference; we are pleased to request your full length, unproduced script for consideration. Please review the guidelines carefully and completely before making application.  Your application must be uploaded and complete by September 30, 2019 or it cannot be considered.

Currently, we are not considering musicals, plays for young audiences or one-person plays.  Also, if you were a 2019 Conference playwright we ask you to observe a one-year hiatus from applying.

The 2020 Conference will be held in Philadelphia, PA from July 7-26, 2020 at The Drake Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. Invited playwrights will have the opportunity to work with a director, dramaturg and Philadelphia-based, professional actors over a 20-day period that allows for 29 hours of rehearsal and staged reading time as well as ample time to reflect and write.

The work will begin with a three-day roundtable (July 7-9) that will help in laying the collaborative groundwork for the development time ahead. The Conference includes two public staged readings that are intended as a part of the process, giving playwrights an opportunity to measure the efficacy of the work accomplished and provide an opportunity to gauge the work ahead.

PlayPenn will provide travel for casting, travel to and from the conference, housing, per diem and a stipend.

Applicants should be aware of the following points about PlayPenn:

·  We are a development conference rather than a festival or showcase for new work. The distinction is important and meaningful to us in the current climate of the increasing commercialization of play development;

·  We work to avoid participation in what has become known as “development hell” by placing authority in the hands of the playwright and fostering an environment in which risk is rewarded and honest assessment is encouraged and provided;

·  We make a concerted effort to provide an experience that relieves writers of the distractions of the day-to-day world;

·  We expect playwrights who accept a place at the Conference to work on their play.  The Conference is not intended as an opportunity for playwrights to simply hear their plays in a rehearsed reading.

·  We focus on the needs of the text. The public Conference readings are intended to present a glimpse into how the text lives off the page rather than how the play might be augmented or staged in production.

From the time of invitation to participate at PlayPenn, we expect that playwrights will accept no invitations for development that precede the July Conference dates.

For our application process, PlayPenn uses the Submittable platform.  Please upload the following with no identifying information in the document or the document name:

1. An original script in .pdf format with no identifying information (no name on the document). Applications that are submitted in non-pdf format will not be considered.

2. Your current resume (.pdf) with no identifying information (playwright name or agent).

3. A casting breakdown and the number of actors required (.pdf) (no name on the document).  Please do not assume that doubling schemes are obvious.  We want to know how many actors your play requires in a workshop setting.

4. The play's development and production history (.pdf) (no name on the document). Plays that have had readings are eligible.  Plays that have been produced or that have been through multiple development processes are not eligible.

5.  List three areas of challenge in your play that you’d like to address while you’re at PlayPenn (.pdf) (no name on the document). Please be specific.

***If your files include the playwright’s name, your application will be disqualified***

PlayPenn does not accept agent submissions.

Your application must be uploaded and complete by midnight September 30, 2019 or it cannot be considered.

Because of the number of applications we receive, and the labor intensive nature of responsibly considering your play, we are unable to provide individual feedback.

Thank you for your application. We look forward to reading your work.

The 41st Annual Mid-America Theatre Conference Playwriting Symposium seeks 10-minute plays

web site

Playwriting Symposium—Call for Ten-Minute Plays

Click this link for a downloadable PDF of the CFP:  MATC Playwriting 2020 10M CFPlays
The Playwriting Symposium of the Mid-America Theatre Conference seeks submissions of new, unproduced ten-minute plays by playwrights who wish to participate in the Dramatists Play Lab.

All submissions must be received by OCTOBER 1, 2019.

For our 2020 conference in Chicago, MATC invites proposals for presentations, discussions, workshops, and scripts around the theme of “Character.” How do we define character and how do we impart that in our classrooms, our process, our research? How can character illuminate or revise our understanding of theatre history? How can out practices resist representation or illuminate the complexity and intersectionality of identities? What characters have we chosen to remember and which have we chosen to forget? In what ways have the characteristics of our theatre practices inscribed themselves upon the bodies of theatre practitioners? How do current perspectives and representations challenge the character of past practices? We invite proposals that analyze, challenge, and interact with the sense of character. Join us in Chicago to explore the many characters who build the character of our discipline. We encourage playwrights to consider the all-conference theme as a springboard to generate plays that problematize traditional stories and structures; although submissions not directly related to the conference theme will be considered as well.

The Playwriting Symposium invites proposals of 10-minute scripts around the theme of “Character.” This is a juried event, and while we invite all playwrights to submit, the call for scripts is directed primarily at academic playwrights who are faculty members or graduate students and/or professionals in the field who seek the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback from a respondent and peers. First-time conference attendees are welcome to submit!

Chicago is a popular conference site for MATC, so we are particularly eager for help in spreading the word to playwrights in both academic and professional theatres within the reach of the conference location.

Each selected play will have an assigned team of a director, dramaturg, actors, and possibly a scenographer. All participants assigned to a given project will have the final script in hand prior to the start of the conference, and a preliminary conversation (via email, video conference, conference call, etc.) is expected. Each play will receive 75 minutes of rehearsal at the conference, and will be presented as a staged reading in a conference room during a Playwriting Symposium session.
A small number of additional plays will be selected for cold readings as a part of our annual Fringe Festival.
All selected playwrights must register for the conference and are expected to attend rehearsals for their play and participate in a post-reading discussion. Alas, there is no funding from the conference for travel or lodging costs.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
Scripts must be typewritten using Samuel French or similar guidelines with a Times New Roman 12-point font.

Scripts may not exceed ten minutes in length. We will NOT accept plays with longer run times. Please time your plays prior to submission. A general page estimate for a 10-minute play includes approximately 8-9 pages, although this is clearly not an exact science. Scripts with fast-paced dialogue are often much shorter in time than plays with extensive monologues.
Due to the nature of the conference, please limit your script to a maximum of four actors.
Submitted scripts should bear only the title of the play and NOT the name and address of the author. To ensure blind review, include a separate cover page document with the title of the play, name of the author, address, phone number, email, and university/college, theatre affiliation.
Playwrights may submit only one (1) 10-minute play script to the conference. Playwrights who submit multiple plays will not be considered. Plays that have been produced or have received workshops prior to the submission date are not eligible for the Symposium. Please note that playwrights may also submit one (1) full-length or one-act play to the Plays-in-Progress initiative under a separate CFP.
If you are also interested in (or know someone else who is interested in) acting or directing, or serving as a dramaturg, or scenographer, please apply (or have them apply) under separate cover. There is a separate CFP for those roles.
No individual may submit to more than two symposia. This limit is put in place to avoid scheduling conflicts and to provide more individuals the opportunity to present. Please note, however, that all positions listed in this call (as well as the calls for ten minute plays and Plays-in-Progress) are one symposium.

Please submit plays and cover pages via the online form available here: https://forms.gle/sy9YugAD5kVSZdLe9
Questions can be directed to Justin Maxwell at playwriting@matc.us
Acceptances will be acknowledged by December 2019 or earlier.

PlayPenn Conference seeks full-length scripts

web site

Beginning September 1, PlayPenn will be accepting applications for its 2017 new play development conference; we are pleased to request your full length, unproduced script for consideration. Please review the guidelines carefully and completely before making application. Application materials will be accepted between September 1 and September 30, 2016. Your application must be uploaded and complete by September 30, 2016 or it cannot be considered.

Currently, we are not considering musicals, plays for young audiences or oneperson plays. Also, if you were a 2016 Conference playwright we ask for a one year hiatus from applying.

The 2017 conference will be held in Philadelphia, PA from July 11-30th at The Drake Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. Invited playwrights will have the opportunity to work with a director, dramaturg and Philadelphia-based, professional actors over a 20-day period that allows for 29 hours of rehearsal and staged reading time along with ample time to reflect and write. The work will begin with a three-day roundtable (July 11-13) that will help in laying the collaborative groundwork for the development time ahead. The conference includes two public staged readings that are intended as a part of the process, giving playwrights an opportunity to measure the efficacy of the work accomplished and provide an opportunity to gauge the work ahead. PlayPenn will provide travel for casting for both writer and director, travel to and from the conference, housing, per diem and a stipend.

Applicants should be aware that we are a development conference rather than a festival or showcase for new work. The distinction is important and meaningful to us in the current climate of the increasing commercialization of play development. We work to avoid participation in what has become known as “development hell” by fostering an environment in which risk is rewarded and honest assessment is provided and encouraged. To that end, we focus on the needs of the text. The public Conference readings are intended to present a glimpse into how the text lives off the page rather than how the how the play might be staged in production.
