THE DECISION: 2012 Play Festival



I'm organizing/producing a reading festival on Nov. 10-12th (Sat-Monday). It's a theatre series for 10-minute plays based around the theme of 'Decisions,' the 2012 election, and the shift in the nation's landscape and our worldview. 

We're looking for a few great short plays. Plays will be judged by a panel of directors and producers. And then a decision will be made by first week of October. Here is the information. Please spread the word to others. 

This is a brand-new thing that I'm jumping into and we'll see how this turns out. But I think it will foster a lot of great debate, art, and dialogue among people after this election. No matter who wins, something has shifted and this is an opportunity to reflect, laugh, and change.


The Decision: 2012 Play Festival
Deadline: September 30th

After all the hype, hoopla and voting what do we have as a nation and a people? "The Decision" is a short play reading festival about what happens after this heated election but also where we will be or should be after this November election. The plays don't have to be about politics but should address some aspect of our culture, media, and our relationships with each other. 

We're looking for funny, witty, insightful, dramatic 10 minute plays. Tell us where we'll be in 2012 and beyond in our politics, media, and community. The festival will take place the weekend of Nov 10th-12th (Saturday, Sunday, Monday). They'll be a talk back after each night that will allow the audience to engage with the writers and directors.

Plays will be evaluated by a small panel of directors and producers. The top plays will be selected for the 3-day play reading festival at Three Jewels in the East Village. 

Guidelines:
-submit plays by Sept. 30th
-10 minute plays
- include your name and contact info on title page along with list of characters
-send synopsis of play in cover email
-E-mail submissions: 2012playfestival@gmail.com
