THREE CAT PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES CALL FOR PLAYWRIGHTS FOR THE SECOND ANNUAL CHICAGO NEW WORK FESTIVAL
(Chicago, IL) Three Cat Productions is accepting new play and new musical submissions for the second annual Chicago New Work Festival. Submissions will be accepted through Oct. 1, 2013 (online process preferred). Only Chicago-based playwrights may participate. Only full-length scripts (over 60 minutes) that have not received a full staging (with costumes, sets and lights, etc.) will be considered.
The 2014 festival will be held from Jan. 6 to Feb. 1, 2014 at the Berger Park Coach House (6205 N. Sheridan Road) on the Chicago Lakefront off the Granville Red Line stop. Three Cat Productions is a resident theatre at the Berger Park Coach House Theater, a partnership with the Chicago Park District.
Eight playwrights will be invited to participate based on their submissions. The Chicago New Work Festival is development-oriented. Each invited playwright will be paired with a director, and the playwright-director team will be assigned a week of the festival to workshop the play, with a staged reading at the end of the week.
For more information or to submit, please visit threecatproductions.com or email Jason Paul Smith, Artistic Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chicago New Work Festival is part of Three Cat Productions’ efforts to showcase Chicago playwrights and to bring new work programming to the Edgewater area. Three Cat Productions 2013/14 mainstage season kicks off in fall with Joint Attention, a drama about the struggles of a young couple with an autistic child, by Pat Curtis. For the holidays, Three Cat presents Tell Me When It Hurts, a farcical romantic comedy, by Lisa Scott. The season concludes in spring with a new musical revue, Hang Your Hat at Mr. K’s, about the stars who performed at one of Chicago’s most famous jazz clubs; book written by Jarrin Davis.
