UN-CHARTED NEW WORKS FESTIVAL

web site

What is UN-Charted?

UN-Charted is a New Works Festival dedicated to giving playwrights, composers, librettists and lyricists an opportunity to have their work performed by professionals. Slated for the month of July, 2017, fifty miles north of Manhattan, under the stars on the Common at The Fairfield Museum in Fairfield, CT, Unquowa Repertory will present between two and four works that are in development and in need of an audience.

SUBMIT A SCRIPT!
How does it work?

Selected writers will work daily with a director and company of Equity performers, as well as a music director, should the piece be a musical. A stipend, and transportation from NYC are provided for each artist selected. Writers who do not live in the NY Metro area should still apply as financial aid for transportation or housing may be available.
What can be submitted?

Submitted projects should be works in development and not have had a professional production prior to the UN-Charted Festival. We will consider both original and adapted works, providing that the rights to any material not in the public domain have been granted in writing and a copy has been included with the applicant’s materials.
How Do I Submit?

To apply for inclusion in the Festival, please have the following materials ready:
  • A letter of introduction
  • Contact information, i.e. email address, phone number, mailing address
  • Biographical information for each member of the writing team
  • Proof of rights, if the work is an adaptation of copyrighted material
  • A synopsis (no more than one page, please)
  • A character breakdown specifying age, gender and ethnicity (if important)
  • The first 30 pages of the script/libretto

If your piece is a musical, please prepare…
4 Demo tracks in mp3 format (demos do not need to be produced in a studio)

Once you’ve gathered these materials, click on the button below to fill out the submission form. Unquowa Repertory will send an email acknowledging receipt of the materials.
Important Dates

Unquowa Repertory will be accepting submissions until February 28th, 2017. If we feel your piece is a good fit for UN-Charted, we will request a full script and further demos by mid to late March. Final decisions for UN-Charted 2017 will be made by the end of April, 2017, when all applicants will receive an email either thanking you for your submission or inviting you to present at UN-Charted.
