Against the Grain Theater Festival Seeks Submissions

By Neil Wechsler

Against the Grain Theater Festival Seeks Submissions
Against the Grain Theater Festival exists to discover and promote rare and innovative plays from around the world.

We believe that memorable characters and timeless stories can bring people together to foster a deeper understanding of human nature and the world. Like the moth that represents us, we always evolve, just as characters develop and stories unfold in the plays that engage us the most. And like the moth, compelling plays are powerful yet delicate, inevitable yet unpredictable. Our festival is a celebration of these rare plays from around the world.

Through our programs, Against the Grain hopes to inspire people with the courage and the honesty to face themselves, one another, and the world with compassion and respect.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Against the Grain Theater Festival is seeking submissions for its 2016 high school and college playwriting competition. The winning playwrights will receive a workshop in Buffalo, New York, where they will get to work on their plays with local actors, directors, and designers. The workshop will culminate with a public reading.

Guidelines:

1. Submissions will be accepted from high school and college students from around the world. Graduate students are eligible for the college competition. If you are not in school, but would like to submit a play, you may submit to the high school competition if you are between the ages of 13 and 18, and to the college competition if you are between the ages of 19 and 23. If you are not attending school, please provide proof of age.

2. Submissions must be original, unpublished, unproduced plays, in English, of at least 20 pages. Plays that have received a workshop, reading, or non-professional production may be submitted.

3. Submissions will be accepted until February 15, 2016. A bracket format for the eight regions in the map below will be used to determine the overall winner. The semi-finalists in both the high school and the college competition will receive detailed feedback from Against the Grain Theater Festival and will be recognized on our website after the competition. Winners will be announced on May 1, 2016. Workshop dates are yet to be determined.

4. Please include only the play’s title on the first page of the script. Do not include any other identifying information in the script.

If you have questions, please contact Brad Umble at brad@atgfestival.org. Learn more here.
