Playwrights Foundation- THE REWRITE: IT’S ALL ABOUT PLAY SUBMISSIONS

THE REWRITE: IT’S ALL ABOUT PLAY SUBMISSIONS THIS WEEK


In this issue:

SUBMIT YOUR PLAY

HELP US SELECT NEW PLAYS – JOIN OUR NATIONAL READING COMMITTEE

LITERARY MANAGER LOGAN ELLIS



          PLAYWRIGHTS, SUBMIT YOUR PLAY TODAY!

PF’s open script submission process for our 40th Anniversary Season is open through October 1, 2016! Get your play read and considered!

Why Should I Apply?
Very simply, our open submission process is the single best way that Playwrights Foundation artistic staff gets acquainted with and can actively champion the work of a wide range of contemporary writers. While our reading series and festivals are outward expressions of the works we read, our development process and the advocacy and access to a national network of theater industry professionals interested in producing new work is priceless to new and emerging playwrights.

Playwrights Foundation exists to nurture, develop, and champion new plays.  As one of the leading and long-established “incubators” for new plays, when playwrights submit a play to us, they are not just entering a competition, but entering a community where their work will be valued and promoted. We are seen as a go-to source for producers looking for the kind of work we seek.

A National Reader Committee, comprised of fifty theater professionals with capacity to refer or produce plays, reads every submission in full.  All plays are read once by two readers; semi-finalists have a third reader added; the finalists will have their play read by twelve readers.

What Our Playwrights Have to Say
“BAPF was a crucial step in its [his play, Sound, BAPF 2014] development! Could not have done it without the amazing SF community of artists.” – Don Nguyen 

“Your willingness to take a chance on an unknown student playwright with an early play means more than I can say.” – Philana Omorotionmwan (Before Evening Comes, BAPF 2016)

“Playwrights Foundation has always held a special place in my heart and in my career/evolution as an artist.” – Lauren Yee (Samsara, BAPF 2012)

What Are You Looking For?
Playwrights Foundation’s programs are open to all playwrights living in the Americas and writing primarily in English.  We look for singular, diverse voices addressing comtemporary issues in ways that push the boundaries of theater.

Check out our submission guidelines and details HERE.

While we do request a modest $20 submission fee to cover processing, if this is an issue, please contact Logan Ellis, our Literary Manager to discuss a waiver atliterary@playwrightsfoundation.org.


HELP US SELECT NEW PLAYS – JOIN OUR NATIONAL READING COMMITTEE

READ FOR US!

Playwrights Foundation builds a discerning and diverse pool of theater makers to join our National Reading Committee each year for the Playwrights Foundation selection process. In 2016, over 500 playwrights submitted their work to the festival, and over 50 readers joined us to evaluate and select the winning scripts.

Who Can Apply?

If you are a theater artist invested in the world of new plays (for example, producer, artistic director, dramaturg, or literary manager to name a few), we want your voice in our selection process. Practitioners in all phases of career development are encouraged to apply.

What Do I Have to Do?

  • For the 40th Annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival, the committee will read plays from October 1st, 2016 to February 1st, 2017.  
  • Each reader will evaluate at least 5 plays each month during the 4-month term.
  • All members of this committee are volunteers, but we offer some super benefits:
    • Tickets to the festival
    • Recognition in our programs and website
    • Best of all, access to hundreds of awesome new scripts!

Meet our Literary Manager Logan Ellis

Logan serves as the Foundation’s Literary Manager, overseeing our open submission process, and managing the National Reading Committee and PF Literary Council. When he’s not in Seattle, Logan is in San Francisco, where he’s also about to become producer-in-residence at the Magic Theatre.Learn more about Logan.

Currently, Logan is directing Hooded, or Being Black for Dummies  (BAPF 2015) by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm at Theatre Battery in Kent WA, near Seattle, where Logan serves as Producing Artistic Director. and was a co-founder.  “Theatre Battery has found its audience by talking about its work with community leaders … and using a ‘radical hospitality’ ticketing system, which encourages people to pay when they can, but lets anyone through the door for free”, said the Seattle Times.

 

A note from Logan about the Festival:
“Producers and Literary Managers look to the yearly Bay Area Playwrights Festival to discover some of the most compelling and urgent emerging voices in American theater. The collection of actors, directors, and dramaturgs that contribute to the development of these plays features the most intelligent and supportive artists of the San Francisco scene. We hope you’ll join us in 2017.”


P.S. WE’RE HIRING

Meet the Playwrights
First up is Walt McGough, talking about his play, Non-Player Character, a deep virtual dive into the scary real world of women in gaming.
Read the interview with Walt HERE

Interview with a Playwright:
WALT McGOUGH

Non-Player Character

Aspiring video game designer Katja and her longtime friend Trent are an unstoppable team in the online underworlds of SpearLight until Trent wages a real-life war against her with an army of internet trolls.

Based loosely on GamerGate, this play delves into a timely and boldly theatrical exploration of the misogyny in the games we play, and who’s winning.


Saturday July 16th & Friday July 22nd
Custom Made Theatre San Francisco

“So I’d been thinking for a while about what a play about video games could look like on stage, and then… with the #gamergate “movement” flaring up and exposing a lot of the massive obstacles that women in the games industry and gaming culture face on a daily basis. It’s really not much different at its core than the issues women and minorities face all over in society.”
