Thank you to everyone who submitted entries for our Bacchanalia 2017 New Play Readings Festival! We are furiously reading through your scripts, with the plans for the festival to open in New Orleans in May. One play from the festival will be selected for a full production.
A special thank you to Play Submission Helper for spreading the word! They are an excellent resource for playwrights, and have several other postings with deadlines coming up this month.
This year’s theme is Protest Plays.
Our guidelines for playwrights were:
Show us your discontent and artistic ire with the coming regime! All new plays adhering at least broadly to the theme will be accepted, but preference will be given to plays with:
Five or less actors required
Multiple speaking roles for women
Less than an hour running time
A focus not merely on the Orange One, but the larger problematic culture in American politics.
Please understand that by submitting your play, you grant performance rights to Blunt Objects Theatre and any associated company through 2017. If your play is selected for a full performance, monetary compensation will be determined, but there is no monetary compensation for participating in the festival.
Multiple entries are acceptable.
More details coming soon!
