New Play Series
The Umbrella Stage Company is seeking submissions from local playwrights of new work written specifically for a digital platform. Submissions should be 30-40 minutes in length and should leverage technical opportunities unique to a virtual performance environment to create a fully realized, digital audience experience.
Plays should feature fewer than 6 actors and may be of any genre of the playwright’s choosing. Playwrights will be asked to participate in a talk-back with audiences following each performance.
Plays written by or amplifying BIPOC artists are of particular interest.
Chosen submissions will receive a $150 fee.
Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis with review starting November 15.
To Submit: Plays may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as a PDF, accompanied by a one paragraph summary, artist statement, and complete contact information.
