Left Coast Theatre Co. seeks 10- to 15-Minute Plays

web site

Left Coast Theatre Co. seeks 10- to 15-Minute Plays of any genre (comedy, drama, etc.) that relate to the theme listed below.

We encourage innovative/humorous/surprising scripts that address the following:

THE MORNING AFTER

Left Coast Theatre Co. returns to its roots with “The Morning After,” an anthology of original LGBTQ shorts. This year we are looking for plays that address big moments we experience in life: weddings, funerals, breakups, proposals, birthdays, coming out. But sometimes it’s the morning after that really changes our lives. We are looking for shorts that showcases the hilarity, the joy, the grief, the angst, and the uncertainty of the morning after the big event. #LCTCmorning
