The venerable Pittsburgh New Works Festival has issued its annual call for one-acts.
The scripts must be previously unproduced. The playwrights can be from anywhere.
Twelve plays will be selected for mainstage productions in September, when the festival mounts its 23rd season at Off the Wall Theater Company's well-regarded new venue, in Carnegie. The scripts are matched with local theater companies, who then stage the work.
Playwrights are eligible to compete for the fest’s “Donna Award” for outstanding contribution by a playwright, which comes with a $500 prize.
The festival, a grassroots venture, typically attracts scripts from all over the country.
The deadline for submission is April 6. Submissions must be made online, including the $15 submission fee. Full guidelines are available here.
