A Works-In-Progress Play Reading Series
Deadline: January 5, 2009
To be produced by RCA Theatre, She Said Yes!, and White Rooster Productions in celebration of International Women's Week, March 6 - 8, 2009
Theatre companies RCA Theatre, She Said Yes!, and White Rooster Productions are joining forces to present the third annual series of play readings by and about women, in celebration of International Women's Week.
All submissions must be either by a female playwright or deal with a female character as the central figure. All plays must be unproduced, although previous workshops or readings of the work are permitted.
Scripts will be selected by Ruth Lawrence, Artistic Director of White Rooster Productions and Sara Tilley, Artistic Director of She Said Yes!. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process via email no later than February 1, 2009.
Each script will receive a one-day dramaturgical workshop in February with a professional cast and dramaturge, followed by a staged reading in St. John's between March 6-8, 2009. All playwrights, actors and dramaturges will receive a small honorarium for their work. The Festival does not cover any transportation or accommodations costs for out-of-town playwrights. All proceeds from the reading series will be donated to a local women's shelter.
