Park Plays will be produced in July, 2017. There will be ten world-premiere short plays that reflect the variety of events, people, and places in the park. Half of these plays are commissioned, and half will be selected from submissions. Submitted plays should be up to 10 pages, and deal with Flushing Meadows Corona Park in a meaningful way.
We encourage writers to visit the park and investigate its many traditions and cultures at https://www.nycgovparks.org/parks/flushing-meadows-corona-park/. All of the Park Plays festival will be performed by a diverse ensemble of 8 actors, so please keep flexibility in mind regarding casting.
Submissions will be open from Monday, January 9, 2017, and will close on Sunday, February 12, 2017.
Playwrights whose plays are chosen will receive a fee of $250. Previously produced plays will not be accepted. Please send your play and a short bio (as two separate PDFs) to email@example.com.
