This Is Water Theatre is currently seeking plays

web site

This Is Water Theatre is currently seeking plays for our second season. We are the first professional, ensemble theatre company in Bryan/College Station, TX (home to Texas A&M University). Our focus is on performing new plays, devised work, and deconstructions of classic work that will encourage young adults to become regular theatre-goers. Plays should include between 4 and 8 characters, with roles for at least 2 male and 2 female actors.

We will consider all scripts that meet this qualification, but the following criteria will guide our selection process:
Most roles need to be filled by our fixed ensemble, visible HERE.
(although there may be a few changes in the 2014-2015 ensemble, it will largely remain the same). All ensemble members need not perform in each play, and we have the availability to bring in guest artists, but the ensemble will form the core of each cast.
We generally do not use traditional theatre spaces. For this reason, scripts that lend themselves to other types of venues or unusual staging are particularly encouraged.

Like any theatre committed to new work, we are always excited to produce premieres. However, we do not prioritize “World Premiere” status, so scripts that have already had a small number of productions are just as welcome as those which have not yet been produced.

To submit, please email a PDF version of your full script to dramaturg@thisiswatertheatre.com. 

We will accept submissions either until we receive 200 or until July 15. Authors of selected plays will receive a small royalty per performance, and we will do our best to fly you to Texas to observe either rehearsals or performances, pending budgetary availability. We look forward to reading your work!
