ADIRONDACK PLAYS SEEKING NEW PLAYS FOR 6 ANTHOLOGIES

web site

Adirondack Plays is a publishing company with a mission: Connect theater groups with new plays relevant for the 21st century. Adirondack Plays publishes anthologies of new plays so that artistic directors can easily find plays for their particular needs.

We are publishing six anthologies this fall and are searching for new plays of any length that fit in the anthology topic areas. Considered plays can be unproduced of have a long production history; full-length, one-act or shorter; dramas or comedy – but not musicals. Plays submitted by May 15, 2015 will receive full consideration.

Adirondack Plays will pay royalties to the authors based on sales of the anthology. Playwrights retain all the rights with the plays for productions and for future publication.

Adirondack Plays does not publish single editions of plays, all submitted plays must fit into one of the following anthologies:

· Mostly Female - Community Theater throughout the country have the same problem -- more actresses than actors. While most plays have more male than female characters. This anthology will have plays -- both full-length and one-acts -- which have more roles for women (or non-gender specific roles).

· Social Justice - Plays with a cause. The Social Justice anthology will feature plays concerning race, feminism, poverty, wealth inequality, immigration or other issues of social justice.

· LGBTQ - The LGBTQ Anthology will focus on the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and questioning individuals in the 21st century. All types of plays are welcome including romantic comedies, serious drama and everything in between. The only requirement is that non-heterosexuals are the main characters.

· Black Box - Black box plays have very basic technical arrangements, such as limited sets, simple lighting effects, and an intimate focus on the story, writing, and performances rather than technical elements. Plays for Fringe festivals and other experimental theater are encouraged.

· High School One Acts - One act plays are popular for high schools to get more drama students the opportunity to perform. One act plays are also often used in competitions. For this anthology, we are looking one act plays that are appropriate for high schools, meaning no sex and minimal violence. Note: characters are not limited to high school age.

· For Churches - Church theaters are in need of high-quality plays. Adirondack Plays for Churches will focus on plays with messages of love, forgiveness and generosity. Plays do not have to be specifically Christian, but should not contain vulgar language or sexual innuendo. In addition to full-length and one-acts, shorter plays that can be incorporated into worship services will also be accepted.
