We are accepting original scripts that have not been previously produced, as well as concepts for devised pieces, from NYC-based artists. This production will be performed for public audiences in Fall 2020 and subsequently toured to schools and community groups. The selected applicant will be compensated with a stipend.

Submitted stories must center a population that has been historically underrepresented in theatre. Inspiration for the piece can include but is not limited to: a folk tale, legend, piece of music, visual art piece, or historical event.

  • For young people within the age range of 4-11.
  • 40-60 minutes in length.
  • Can be performed with 1-3 actors.
  • Appropriate for up to 70 audience members.
  • If submission is an original script, it must be finished and ready for rehearsal (although the script is free to continue developing throughout the process).
  • Must include specific opportunities for interaction throughout. Examples of appropriate interaction include but are not limited to: call and response, group movement, posing questions to the audience, or bringing a small group onstage to help with a task.
  • Must be able to become a sensory friendly, relaxed performance
It is desired that applicants have experience with interactive performance, but it is not required. The selected applicant will train with Artistic Director Gianna Cioffi to develop the interactive elements of the piece in harmony with Emit’s style and community.

web site

WE ARE ON THE HUNT FOR NEVER-BEEN-PRODUCED SCRIPTS BY EMERGING PLAYWRIGHTS.

We define “emerging” as a playwright that has not had more than two professional productions or a published script.

"Never been produced" means plays that have had small readings and workshops are fine, but plays that have been previously produced or published are not accepted.

If you are unsure if you are eligible, please email us at contact@campfiretheatrefestival.com with details.

We will accept full length plays that are more than sixty pages, less than one hundred and twenty pages, and may have an intermission.

  • We currently cannot accept musicals. 
  • We can accept children's plays. 
  • e will accept plays of any genre.

IF YOU ARE SELECTED:

Your play will be assigned a cast and director.

You will receive a stipend of $100 for a selected full-length play.

Campfire Theatre Festival is not currently able to provide playwright travel stipends for the Staged Reading Series; however, if a selected playwright can provide their own travel to Boise for the festival, all efforts will be made to assist with housing.

The Spark Program accepts plays by emerging playwrights for a twenty-hour workshop process that culminates in a reading at the festival in Boise, Idaho in September 2020.

IF YOU ARE SELECTED:

Your play will be assigned a cast, a dramaturg and director.

You will receive a stipend of $100 for a selected full-length play.

THERE IS NO FEE TO SUBMIT FOR CAMPFIRE THEATRE FESTIVAL.

ANY PLAYS SUBMITTED NOT-BLINDED WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND WILL NOT BE READ.

If you have previously had your work selected for Campfire, please observe a one-year hiatus before submitting again.

IASH/Traverse Creative Fellowship

web site

IASH and the Traverse Theatre will commission a play on or inspired by any aspect of the Institute’s current interests. The stipend will be £10,000 and the recipient will have a private office and full Fellowship at IASH, and contribute to the Institute’s events, including giving at least one work-in-progress seminar during the tenure of the Fellowship.  During the period of the Fellowship the playwright will receive dramaturgical support from the Traverse’s Literary Department. The recipient must be Edinburgh-based for the duration of the residency, as their regular presence at IASH is expected and they will be encouraged to play a part in the artistic life of the theatre.

The tenure of the Fellowship will be between 6 and 10 months, by agreement, with the intention that the playwright will submit a complete play to the Traverse at the end of 2020.

The ideal candidate will be a writer who wants to engage actively with the Traverse and is eager to make the most of the unique environment that IASH provides to further their thinking and develop their work. You can find out more about IASH via the About page.


We encourage ideas from writers that want to actively engage with both the Institute's interests and the Traverse Theatre's desire to entertain, excite, provoke and delight audiences alike - whether through a brilliant story, an innovative new form or use of technology, or with a striking new theatrical concept.

Please send a cover letter and CV to iash@ed.ac.uk by 5pm on 29 November 2019.

Interested applicants are invited to put in writing why they would like to take up this Fellowship and what they would like to explore in their commissioned play.  Applications should demonstrate an awareness of the work and ethos of the Traverse and IASH, and a sense of how the writer and their work might fit into this. Applicants should have had a minimum of two professional productions of their work. Interviews will be held in central Edinburgh on Wednesday 11 December 2019.
