The Strides Collective Emerging Playwrights Workshops

web site

Deadline: September 1, 2021 11:59 PM EDT

The Strides Collective, a new Philadelphia-area queer theatre company, is seeking TWO (2) PLAYWRIGHTS a to participate in separate one-month-long Emerging Playwrights Workshops over the course of November or December 2021. 

This is a REMOTE play development opportunity, conducted entirely over Zoom. The deadline for submissions is September 1st, 2021. Interviews for applicants in consideration will occur in mid-September, with final selections made before September 30th.

The Strides Collective Emerging Playwrights Initiative is a new play development program designed to give a safe and productive environment to “emerging playwrights,” those who have not had their work fully produced before or may not have the resources or means to have their work developed otherwise.

There is an available stipend of $500 for each workshop to be split amongst the creative teams (directors, playwrights, actors, dramaturg, etc.). Selected playwrights will receive personalized dramaturgical feedback on drafts, the opportunity to hear their work read aloud by actors, collaborate with a like-minded director, and be granted the possibility of further development beyond the workshop timeline with The Strides Collective. There will be no culminating, public-facing component of these workshops; they are strictly for developmental purposes.

Additional General Information:
  • We will be conducting three (3) one-month-long virtual development workshops with emerging queer playwrights. These workshops will involve an opportunity for playwrights to have their developing works directed, acted aloud, and revised in collaboration with those in the room.
  • This workshop will have a maximum of 25 hours allotted for rehearsal time for the month. Rehearsals are not to exceed that allotment in the interest of artists’ time and compensation.
  • We will be placing directors with playwrights. Placements will be made as seen fit depending on the director’s comforts and experiences with themes in the plays selected as well as how we believe they will successfully mesh and work with the playwright.
  • When selecting additional personnel (actors, stage manager, etc.) to assist in the process, please remember that this is a non-union opportunity.

For PLAYWRIGHTS, we are seeking individuals who:

  • Are emerging, queer-identifying writers, age 18+, residing in the Mid-Atlantic Region (PA, NJ, DE, and NY). 
  • Have not had their work professionally produced in full and/or published. The Strides Collective believes in creating opportunities for folks who otherwise do not have access to the resources they need to fully develop their work.
  • Currently have written a finished, but not final, draft of a full-length work of theatre. (Plays, ideally, not musicals). Plays should call for no more than 5 actors (doubling of roles is fine). Plays should be modern and original in content; no period pieces or adaptations, please. Plays must also be aligned with The Strides Collective mission.
  • Are either not involved in other development workshops, or confidently can say they have the availability to commit to this one as well.
  • Need a space to do heavy development work on their scripts, not finishing touches or small edits. 

How to apply:

Playwrights are to fill out the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/TkuGmHMsBJAQ6Y7y7

Playwrights are required to provide:

Separate PDFs of a 20 page selection of your full script, the full draft of the same script, your general availability for November/December, and a resume.

Deadline for submissions is 11:59pm EST on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021.

Though the creator will be primarily responsible for creating, marketing and broadcasting the show, Stellar will lend its support wherever possible to help make the show a success. Stellar will promote the show in its social media and PR outlets and through its Goldstar partnership and will work with the award winner to make sure the technical requirements are met for a successful online show.
  • If you are chosen you have to produce a show within an agreed-upon period of time, and of course, use any financial support or credits made available to you through this program solely for the production of that show. You are required to share financial and production information about the show with Stellar both during and after the run of the show.  You have to work with us to communicate to the world about your show and your talents. This will be once you are chosen, during the time you’re producing the show and for a period of time after the show is done. The goal will be to get the word out about you, your show and the Stellar Emerging Creators Award program, and if you win, we’ll expect you to help us do that with a small commitment of time.
  • The entries will be evaluated based on three things: the artistic merit of the proposed event concept as judged by us; the commercial potential as judged by us, particularly evaluating the potential revenue in light of the budget of the event; and finally the professional credibility of the applicant as being able to deliver the show described. We will have judges that are members of the Stellar team and outside participants who are professionals in the live entertainment industry as well. We will determine the amount awarded based on the budgetary needs of the show and the potential impact of additional funds.
  • The Creator shall own the show and show content, subject to a worldwide, exclusive license to Stellar to digitally transmit and stream the show and show content live and on-demand for a full calendar year beginning on the date of Creator’s acceptance of the Production Budget. The Creator shall be responsible for obtaining and furnishing to Stellar appropriate signed consents, licenses, and other agreements necessary for the performance, reproduction, exhibition, and use of the show and show content in all media, which be described in the Creator’s Production Agreement with Stellar. The Production Agreement may provide for further obligations to Stellar related to the Creator’s exploitation of the show and show content after the expiration of the license to Stellar.
  • The Creator will be responsible for producing the show, including sourcing and employing production services. Stellar will provide recommendations from its preferred partner network and will also help to promote the show to prospective ticket buyers.
  • If you are the sole owner of your show concept, apply as yourself. If you will share ownership of the show concept with an organization, especially an organization that employs you, apply on behalf of the organization and make sure to submit the Delegation of Authority form with your application.

*Stellar will award selected applicants financial support and production credits of up to $50,000. Some or all of this can be recoupable by Stellar through ticket sales, but regardless of the financial outcome, the award winner will not be obligated to pay any of the award back. After recoupment, all earnings from the show will also go to the award winner. Stellar will charge the “Essentials Plan” rate (or equivalent plan) for platform fees, designed to cover direct costs only (9.9% of ticket price). Any costs in the show above the award amount will be the creator’s responsibility, and if the creator does not create the show in an agreed time period, any financial support or credits given through the award would be owed by the creator to Stellar.
