A Light in Dark Places seeks plays

web site

Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre - Los Angeles... Invites you to submit a short-form play to be included in A Light in Dark Places: A Collection of Plays for Hope in accordance with National Suicide Prevention Week

Selected plays will receive a six-performance run and a $50 prize
Performances will be the weekends of Sept. 7th-9th & Sept. 14th-16th at the Stella Adler
Academy of Acting & Theatre - Los Angeles in Hollywood

The plays are to explore the theme of Suicide Prevention with a focus on the experience of living
with mental health conditions, the after-effects of suicide on those left behind, and resources for
those in need. These suggestions are in no way meant to hinder the playwright’s creative process
and the story that he/she would like to tell. However, please keep in mind that we are a play
festival that seeks to bring understanding, awareness, and hope to those struggling.

Please see the accompanying .pdf produced by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,
which will provide some guidance on how these issues may best be safely addressed.
Up to six plays will be selected from the submissions.

Selections will be announced on or around June 22nd, directors will then be assigned, and casting
will commence in August. A four-week rehearsal period is anticipated.

To apply, playwrights must submit an original 5 to 15 page, double-spaced script (previously
produced scripts are not eligible) via email to: submit@alightindarkplaces.org.

Applications must be received by 11:59PM PST, Saturday, June 9th, 2018. 

The script must have the playwright’s
name, email, address and phone number at the top of the first page of the script and include a
detailed cast breakdown. All pages must be numbered.
