Living Room Theater New Play Incubator: Cultural Identity

web site

Living Room Theater is seeking playwrights to develop plays on the theme “Cultural Identity” for its New Play Incubator. Playwrights will be divided into 2 groups and meet 3 times. In the course of 3 weeks, the playwrights individually will create a 10 minute play related to cultural identity. Each group will culminate in a staged reading for the public. Actors and director will be provided for the reading.

There is no fee to submit or to participate. Playwrights that have participated in the previous incubator are not eligible to apply at this time. Playwrights must be able to attend all meetings of at least one group. Please do not submit if you cannot make all the meetings of at least one group. All meetings/rehearsals/readings will be held in Manhattan. Non-New York based playwrights may apply but must be able to travel to the meetings/reading. No travel stipend is provided.
