Mass Rhetoric New Works Festival

web site

This year’s theme for the festival will be #RESIST.

Submissions will be accepted through March 1st 2018

EMAIL YOUR SUBMISSION TO:
submissions@fundamentaltheaterproject.com

We encourage our writers to interpret this to address something that they are passionate about that is relevant right now, and are looking for diversity and a broad spectrum of perspectives. International and immigrant voices are highly encouraged - foreign language plays with translation will be accepted.

Five short plays/musicals will be accepted and presented in a rehearsed staged reading format and given a one-night performance in NYC in April 2018. Each performance will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on the issues explored in the piece, with a post-show reception to follow. By combining passionate artists and knowledgeable speakers we hope to raise consciousness and unite communities through the medium of live theatre.

SEEKING SUBMISSIONS THAT ARE…

  • Unpublished, previously unproduced plays/musicals without pending professional productions (previous readings or workshops acceptable)
  • Focused on an interpretation of the theme, #RESIST.
  • One-act length, no longer than 90 minutes
  • No larger than eight actors (multiple roles allowed if doubling is feasible and consistent with the overall flow of the piece)

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSIONS
