Jewish Women's Theatre seeks short plays and monologues

web site

Okay, you’re Jewish, that’s a good start, but how “Jewish” do you have to write? When submitting material, consider the following parameters for your submission:

Please check the themes of the season and submit accordingly. We will not accept late submissions this year.  Thank you!

Sex Addiction & Love in the 21st Century
Deadline for submissions June 1st 2019

  • Please make sure your name and title of your work appear on your submission.
  • An element of Jewish resonance is important, but your submission does not need to feature being Jewish as the prominent theme or subject.
  • Feature women or a woman’s point of view, but not exclusively. Male characters are welcome.
  • Short one-acts (10 minutes max) and monologues (7 minutes max) are preferred.  Will read full-length, but unlikely will produce.
  • 1500 words or less preferred
  • Must be topical for the 21st century. While we consider plays set in another time period, we mostly select contemporary pieces.
  • Small cast a must. One-person shows okay.
  • Previously produced or published work is welcome. Please include production and/or publication history. A new version of a classic or an adaptation from another medium would definitely be of interest.

Although the primary focus of JWT is on the writing, music is often a part of our events. We encourage composers, song-writers, and performers to submit individual work. Musicals are welcome.

Submit your material to ronda@jewishwomenstheatre.org. Be sure to let us know the salon you are submitting for in the subject line of your email.

Laughing Pig Theatre is seeking monologues

web site

Laughing Pig Theatre is seeking WRITERS and STORYTELLERS to write a personal monologue or story about feelings of “embarrassment.” We are seeking diverse storytellers willing to submit personal pieces that illustrate the full range of emotions part and parcel to the experience: humor, tragedy, everything in between. The only guideline is that it must be your original work. Length and exact theme is up to the writer as long as it is inspired by “embarrassment.”

The submission deadline is February 2nd at 11:59pm. 

Our team will select the final pieces that represent the theme. Selected monologues will be performed in our Monologue Cafe on March 22th, 23rd, 29th, & 30th. This event will be public, and video and audio recording is okay. As part of your submission, you give Laughing Pig Theatre the rights to utilize audio, video, and still images from the Monologue Cafe for professional purposes. You will retain all rights to your work. For future reproductions by Laughing Pig Theatre we will request your permission.

Should we select your piece, you will get a digital copy of the performance and a performance as a thank you. You are also welcome to perform your own piece but because of the sensitive nature of what we are asking, we do not require that you read your own work. We will have performers standing by to bring your words to life. If you choose to perform your monologue, you must be available and memorized on March 18th- 21st (7:30pm-10pm) for dress rehearsals and performances March 22nd, 23rd, 29th, & 30th (6:30pm-10pm).

Please review their web site first so you understand what McSweeney's is about.

Please read the submissions guidelines before sending:
https://www.mcsweeneys.net/pages/guidelines-for-web-submissions

Two Steps Forward Monologue Festival

web site

Forward Theater is now accepting submissions for our Two Steps Forward Monologue Festival. All writers are welcome to submit. The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2018. Monologues selected for the festival will be announced on or before April 1, 2019, and performances will take place in June of 2019.

Progress. Onward movement. Gradual betterment. A journey forward. The Wisconsin progressive ideal has been all of these things and more… and also less. The idea began simply enough: honest government that responds to the needs of the people. And like all good ideas, it grew. The Wisconsin progressive ideal has delivered workers’ compensation, limited the working hours for children, and created forest and water conservation acts. This progressive ideal ratified the 19th Amendment for women suffrage and elected the first openly gay US senator. But like all journeys, the path is rarely smooth or straight. The KKK marched through the streets of Madison in 1924, Senator McCarthy dismantled careers and destroyed lives in the 1950s, and Milwaukee and other cities struggled with segregated neighborhoods and schools well into the present day.

As artists we understand that the journey onward requires an honest look back and within. Help us shine a light on Wisconsin’s progressive successes and regressive failures so we as a community can take our next step—forward.

As you consider what to write, please be as creative as possible! Your monologue might be from the point of view of a crusader for change. Or from that of someone impacted by change (positively or negatively). It could be set in our past, present, or future. It could take the tone of comedy, tragedy, mystery, or farce. Our goal is to produce a wildly diverse evening of theater, so let your imaginations run free!

GUIDELINES FOR MONOLOGUE SUBMISSION
  • Monologues should be inspired by the theme: Two Steps Forward.
  • Monologues must be between two and ten minutes in length. A general rule of thumb for length of scripts is a maximum of six pages, double-spaced, using a standard format (twelve point font). All lengths of up to ten minutes will be considered.
  • Monologues must be written for a single actor to perform.
  • We do not accept musical submissions, adaptations, or children’s plays.
  • Monologues should require very simple production values: set-pieces, props, or any other effects needing set-up, strike, or special technical support may disadvantage an otherwise excellent submission.
  • Each playwright may submit up to two scripts with no fee. For each additional script, there is a $5 reading fee, payable by check to Forward Theater Company. Checks may be sent to Forward Theater Company, PO Box 14574, Madison, WI 53708.
  • We are soliciting new work for premiere productions. If the piece has previously received a fully-realized production, do NOT submit.
  • Each script must include a title page with name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Please do NOT list your name anywhere on or within the monologue itself.
  • Submit scripts via e-mail ONLY to monologues@forwardtheater.com. Please use the subject line “Monologue festival submission.”
  • E-Submissions will be accepted until midnight on October 31, 2018.
  • Entries will be acknowledged by e-mail once they have been received. Due to the volume of scripts submitted, we are unable to offer feedback.
  • Winning scripts will be announced on our web site, on or before April 1st, 2019. Winning playwrights will be notified via email or phone on or before this date.
  • Writers will be credited in marketing and playbill materials and will receive a $100 total royalty for the Festival performances. Playwrights are entitled to two complimentary tickets to the opening performance.
If you have questions that are not covered by the info above, please email kmoeller@forwardtheater.com.

We produce new plays without the constraints of a physical theatre, and we release those showings for free on social media platforms because we believe that great art should be accessible to all--no matter where someone may be located. Furthermore, we are champions for marginalized artists, their stories, and their experiences. With our national platform, we aim to give those who have been historically/presently looked over a spotlight.

Headspace Theatre Call for Monologues

web site

Headspace Theatre is seeking dramatic monologues of 5-to-10 minutes in length for publication and to be performed by members of the "From the Neck Up Acting Company."

Form & Content

The monologues should make sense of the head-in-a-box setting.  This will be most successful if characters use the setting as a metaphor for feelings, thoughts, perceptions, urges, desires, insights, experiences, stories or situations rather than -- or in addition to -- commenting on the literal confines of the space.

Playwrights can also suggest costume and set design details that could fit in the Headspace (e.g., surrounded by foliage, mirrors or tiny people, etc.).
 
Submission Guidelines

  • Deadline:  Midnight, June 30, 2018.
  • Length:  No longer than 2 pages single-spaced, 12 pt.
  • Limit:  2 monologues per playwright.
  • Format: PDF or WORD docs as email attachments.
  • Submit to:  michael.bigelow.dixon@gmail.com.
  • Document must include name and email info for playwright.

Response
Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged and playwrights will hear if their works are selected by September 30, 2018.  Playwrights whose works are selected will receive a Letter of Agreement specifying payment and rights for performance and publication.
