Strand Theater seeks 10-minute plays from women

web site

The Strand Theater, now in its 9th year, is the only brick-and-mortar theater in Baltimore this season to present outstanding works written ONLY by women artists. This reflects our mission to champion challenging and provocative theater that especially celebrates women's diverse voices and perspectives supported by the creative talents of all artists.

Each fall, the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts sponsors wonderful free cultural activities across the city under the Free Fall Baltimore umbrella.

Our theme for this year’s Free Fall Baltimore short play festival is “There’s no place like home,” to celebrate our recent move to our wonderful new theatrical home in northeast Baltimore’s Hamilton community. Our Free Fall plays are popular and well-attended.

Submissions are open to women playwrights of all ages. You may address the theme in any way that inspires you. Here are the guidelines:

· Plays may not exceed 10 pages (apart from title page) in standard play format.

· Plays may not exceed 3 characters (no limits on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation; non-human characters are just fine).

· Title page must include title of play, short synopsis, and author contact information (name, address, e-mail, and phone). Include play title and page number on each page.

· All submissions must be PDFs.

· Due to the volume of submissions anticipated, we will only contact playwrights selected for the festival.

Deadline: September 30, 2016
