Night of New Works Script Submissions

web site

Something Marvelous, a Chicago festival of magical realism, seeks new 3 - 10 minute short plays inspired by Paul Bond’s painting The Releasing of Sorrows.

Take inspiration from the imagery or what the “releasing of sorrows” may mean to you. To fit the genre of magical realism, we seek plays that feature a non-realistic event within a realistic world. We want to encourage playwrights to let their imaginations soar and would love to present staging challenges to our actors and directors and explore what we can do with this amazing genre. (Haunting is a very common convention, so we are seeking fresh ideas!) 

 Selected works will be fully staged and presented in Chicago, IL in early June 2015.

To submit: Email scripts to Literary Manager Sarah Mayhan at festival@somethingmarvelous.org.

Deadline: May 10, 2015
