Athena Project is proud to announce the call for submissions for its 2014 Plays in Progress Series (PIP Series). This Series will take place in Denver at The Aurora Fox Studio Theatre over the course of 3 long weekends, March 14-30, 2014, as part of a larger arts festival celebrating the Voices of Women Artists, including the World Premiere of Government Issued Long Johns by Erin Wagoner, winner of this year’s PIP Series.

Four new plays will be selected based on a blind submission process and given a dramaturg, director, cast and workshop level production during the Festival. One play from the PIP Series 2014 will win a full production in March of 2015 based on a combination of a panel of judges and audience vote. Scripts are being accepted from now until midnight, August 1, 2013.

Visit http://www.athenaprojectfestival.org to submit your script.

Submission Guidelines are as follows:

1. Playwright must be female and may only submit ONE full-length script.
2. The play must not have ever had a fully mounted production. Prior workshop presentations are okay, but the script must be a new version since the time of the workshop.
3. Submission must include:
a. Full copy of script (without playwright contact info*)
b. Character breakdown (without playwright contact info*)
c. Short synopsis of script (300 word limit, without playwright contact info*)
d. Resume
e. Cover letter addressing what the playwright would like to accomplish with the workshop presentation and how she heard about the call for submissions
4. Plays submitted without all supporting materials included will be disqualified.
5. We recommend the playwright be able to travel to the area for rehearsals as needed if selected, and for at least one workshop production performance at their own expense.

We will select 4 playwrights to participate in the PIP Series and hope to strike a balance between local and national work. Exact rehearsal and performance schedules will be worked out with the director, dramaturg, and playwright after all plays are selected.

Please contact us at aastle@athenaprojectfestival.org if you have any questions about submitting. You will receive a confirmation upon receipt of materials.

*Contact info must be listed ONLY on resume and cover letter, not on script or any other documents (submissions will be read blind). All documents should include the Title of the Play, but no playwright contact information.

Timeline:
-Deadline to submit all materials is midnight, August 1, 2013
-Four finalists will be selected in October 2013
-Directors and Dramaturgs will be selected in November 2013
-Rehearsals will begin in January 2014
