Walden Theatre, A TCG theatre and  training center for young actors ages 8-18 located in Louisville, Ky. is seeking submissions for our Slant Culture Series. In addition to our regular offerings of shows from Shakespeare to modern American classics, we produce one play a year in this series.The Slant Culture series presents new works by rising playwrights that feature complex teenage characters. The name Slant Culture comes from the laboratory practice of tilting a test tube to provide a greater area for growth, and Walden Theatre is using this series to challenge our young actors to approach character development by drawing directly from their own lives and those of their peers.

Since we are a private not-for-profit not affiliated with any school system, Walden is in an unique position to introduce to our students new work that they would not, otherwise have a chance to perform. Adult language and adult situations are something our students encounter every day in their real lives and therefore we believe, if the piece has value, we have a duty to present these pieces as a regular part of our season.
