New Play Fest 2017
NEW PLAY FEST
CALLING ALL WRITERS!
The Adobe Rose Theatre
Needs YOU for our first annual
NEW PLAY FEST
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 1st
The Adobe Rose Theatre announces our first annual New Play Fest entitled “The Morning After.” We will produce seven short plays where we hope the artists will tell us about the lives of people we do not know, but should, in the aftermath of an election - any election. At any historical or current time, any place, any country. So, write something.
Tell us how you feel – through farce, comedy, tragedy, and everything in between. Challenge us with unexpected events, places, characters, and points of view that illuminate this defining and divisive moment in American history.
Plays should still be limited to 4 characters or fewer, 10 minutes or less, and take place in one setting, with as few set and furniture requirements as possible, the morning after whichever election you find most compelling.
Here are a few possibilities (but any others are great!):
- High School Students in a cafe the morning after a school council election.
- The morning after the Truman/Dewey election in 1948, when the infamous, and incorrect, headline "Dewey Defeats Truman" was published in the Chicago
- Or, yes, the morning after Trump's victory.
Please submit your play electronically in a PDF format to email@example.com or by mail to:
