We are interested in plays at all levels of development from playwrights of all levels of experience. What we are looking for is an exciting story surrounding the queer experience that begs to be performed on stage. Our goal is to aid playwrights in presenting the story they are excited to tell on stage, with whatever resources they find valuable. We are especially interested in a myriad of stories about the LGBTQ+ experience and are hoping our festival’s representation accurately represents the diversity in our community.
IMPORTANT APPLICATION DETAILS:
- We are defining a one-act play as a play between 10 and 40 minutes long that takes place over one act.
- This festival is specifically for playwrights who identify as LGBTQ+. At this time, we are not accepting plays written by allies.
