In this time for change, Abingdon Theatre Company is recommitting to creating opportunities for all voices to be heard. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce our Fall Festival of Short Plays! This will be a 2-week virtual festival shedding light on stories by people of color. We will be taking submissions later in the summer and our diverse panel of judges, theatre professionals who are BIPOC, will select 6 pieces created, and to be performed and directed by people of color.
To be considered to participate in our Virtual Festival of Short Plays please submit the following to Beatriz Cavalieri: email@example.com
-A Short Play Max 60 Pgs. (60 mins long) Excerpt of a play also welcome. All genres are welcome.
-Headshot and Resume
Deadline: August 17th
-The 6 chosen plays will be invited to participate in the two-week Virtual Festival.
-The winner of the festival will receive a stipend to be used to support further exploration of their piece and will be invited to become an Artist in Residence at Abingdon Theatre Company. Abingdon will then also commit to producing the winning piece as part of our Around the Table free reading series. Through the outreach, online readings and finally the staged reading of the winning piece, we hope to engage around 1500 people of color and create a more diverse environment at Abingdon.
