Facebook page

Black and Brown Theatre, a Detroit area theatre which seeks to create opportunities for theatre artists of color is currently seeking 10 minute plays and/or 10 minute excerpts from larger pieces for our inaugural showcase at the Charles H Wright Museum in Detroit.

For this showcase, we are particularly interested in Black playwrights, Latinx playwrights, Arab American playwrights and Southeast Asian playwrights. 10 minute plays or 10 minute excerpts can be about any topic so long as it is possible for all of the roles to be cast with actors of color (Please note that the plays do not have to discuss race or ethnicity to be considered). Small casts (1-3 actors) preferred. We would also love one of the plays to be either bilingual (Spanish/English) or entirely in Spanish.

Playwrights whose work is accepted will receive a small stipend for their piece. The showcase is a one time performance on Sunday October 30, 2016 in Detroit. Playwrights are not required to attend performance or rehearsals. Playwrights may reside anywhere.

We have already had our auditions so we are looking for pieces ASAP (No later than Sept 4, 2016). We will read pieces as soon as they come and may select a piece before the official deadline as we need to begin rehearsals immediately. Please do not hesitate to send something.

Please send scripts as a PDF or Word Doc to BlackandBrownTheatre@gmail.com. Scripts do not have to be world premieres. Please include your name and contact info (Phone number, email, and mailing address) on the script. Also, please include a synopsis and cast breakdown in the body of the email. No more than 3 submissions per playwright.
