Open Call for Full-length Script
Deadline: February 15, 2017
The Oklahoma City Theatre Company’s 8th annual Native American New Play Festival invites Native American, Alaska Native, Hawaiian, First Nations, and Indigenous Mexico playwrights to submit full-length scripts written from an indigenous perspective. All themes and topics are welcomed. Plays may focus on historical or present-day issues. We are especially interested in plays that center on an Oklahoma tribe and tribal history within the state.
Selection Process: Full length plays that are received by February 15, 2017 will be read and evaluated by a panel comprised of Native American theatre artists, Oklahoma City Theatre Company artistic staff and invested community members. The panel will select 2-3 plays for a staged reading during the festival based on originality, theatricality, and execution. Finalist will receive a staged reading with actors and a director during the first weekend festival on April 8, 2017. An audience discussion will follow the readings. A full production will be awarded to one of the finalists from the readings and showcased as the featured production for the following festival year, 2018.
All submissions must conform to a standard play-script format (one-inch margins, #12 Times or Courier font, all pages numbered).
We welcome plays that have had previous workshops and productions within the last five years.
Please include a production history if applicable. Include a title page with full contact information, (mailing address, phone numbers, email address) a draft or revision date and a character breakdown at the beginning of your script.
Please provide a biography of 100 words and provide a photo of at least 300dpi.
Please label all attachments as follows: Title of the play Author’s Last Name, First Initial.
