Schreiber's Shorts: TRANSITIONS

web site

T. Schreiber Theatre is currently accepting submissions for its yearly Schreiber’s Shorts play festival. We are accepting new works (max 10 minutes) that explore the idea of TRANSITIONS. We encourage creative interpretations of the idea, both dramatic and comedic. We invite playwrights to submit pieces ranging from, but not limited to: political, personal, historical, and religious experiences.

Plays should be in English and submissions from playwrights outside of the U.S. are strongly encouraged.

Sets and costumes should be minimal. Rehearsal furniture only (nothing that requires specially built pieces). Props should be those items typically found in an acting studio props closet.

We encourage submissions that make creative use of sound and lighting. Live sound (including Foley sound effects) is/are encouraged, as well as any pre-recorded sounds or music you imagine being part of your play. We have a wide variety of lighting instruments available (so specials and practicals are okay), although we do not have moving lights or a follow spot.

DEADLINE for submissions is Friday, October 23, 2015.

Plays will be produced at the Gloria Maddox Theatre at T. Schreiber Studios in January 2016.

PLAYS MUST NOT HAVE HAD NEW YORK PRODUCTIONS BEFORE JANUARY 2016

By submitting an entry, you are affirming you are the sole creator of the play and entitled to confer performance rights. You further affirm that, if your play is chosen, you will grant performance rights, royalty-free, to the T. Schreiber Studio & Theatre for up to twelve performances during its Schreiber's Shorts: Transitions: January 2016. The play remains the sole property of the playwright.

There is no fee for submission.

Please send all scripts in PDF or Word format to: theatre@tschreiber.org with the subject “Schreiber’s Shorts” and the name of your play.
