2015 This Round's On Us - 10 minute plays

web site

Nylon Fusion is accepting new works for our quarterly 2015 This Round's On Us festivals, each of which will focus on certain broad eras of the 20th Century (see below). 

The plays do not necessarily have to be set in these time periods, but they should at least be informed by the social, cultural and/or political happenings of the time. Whether you find inspiration in the movies, music or theater of a particular decade, the major events that formed the historical narrative or which have been ignored by history, or the everyday lives of the people of the bygone days of the not-so-long-ago. While the writer should be concerned with the theme in their submissions, there is no need to be overt and obvious in working them into the script. We will select and arrange the plays so that they work best together. Please, don't send us any 1-2 page plays or anything over 20 pages.

Plays should not be longer than 10 pages and/or minutes. Casts no larger than four and minimal props and costumes. Sorry, no musicals. The premise is up to you, but all plays must be somewhat linked to the theme. Original and never produced works please. Authors agree to permit Nylon Fusion to produce their submitted play if the company wishes to do so. The company is responsible for all aspects of production including selecting a director and casting. The author will retain full copyright and ownership of their play. Participation in the rehearsal process may be requested, therefore residence in the NYC metropolitan area is prefered but not will not be a factor in the selection process. Authors must be available via email/phone. Performances will be in NYC. No pay.

Please send a short cover letter with contact information and the full script with title and author’s name on each page in PDF to Alex Ferrill at nylonsubmissions@gmail.com with SUBJECT LINE: This Round's On Us: Time Travel [NAME OF PLAYWRIGHT.]
