Generations
The Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company makes an ongoing commitment to new theatrical work, from world premieres to playwright residencies. Generations is BETC's new play development program. The name comes from BETC's goals for the program: to welcome all generations into the theater to see new plays, and to empower playwrights to generate new work.

Each year, one playwright is chosen from a international applicant pool to join BETC in Boulder for a one-week residency, where the writer workshops the work-in-progress with a director, actors, and a dramaturg. Each residency culminates in a public reading. Generations is made possible in part by the Sustainable Arts Foundation.

Generations 2015-16:

BETC is now accepting submissions for our next Generations residency. In order to support the work of parent playwrights, BETC is seeking full-length plays, for a cast of seven actors or less, written by a parent with at least one child under 18 years of age as of September 1, 2015.

The winning playwright will receive

· a week-long workshop residency in Boulder, Colorado, with daily rehearsals, culminating in a staged reading of the selected script;

· the chance to rewrite and revise during the week as part of the script development experience;

· a stipend for travel and lodging;

· a $250 prize; and

· a $250 childcare stipend to defray the costs associated with childcare during the residency.

During the residency, the selected play will be rehearsed with a cast of professional actors, director, and dramaturg. The week will culminate in a public reading. The selected work will be considered for full production in a future BETC season. The residency will take place during the first two weeks of May 2016; specific date arrangements will be made directly with the winning playwright.

Competition submissions are due September 1, 2015.

Entry Guidelines:

Plays must be written in the English language. Plays that have been produced by Equity or professional companies or that have been published are not eligible. Plays that have had a workshop, reading, or non-professional production or that have been published as an actor's edition will be considered. Plays may not be under option or scheduled for professional production or publication as of September 1, 2015.

To enter our 2015-16 competition, please submit the following two files in PDF format by email to submissions@betc.org:

File 1: Cover sheet, containing within a two-page limit:
1. Contact information: name, phone, email, mailing address, and a paragraph bio for yourself and any other collaborators.
2. A brief synopsis of your play (500 words or less)
3. A brief production history of the work (if applicable)
4. Character descriptions

File 2: A 20-page dialogue sample. Please do not include your name anywhere in the sample file. Full-length scripts will not be accepted.

The application deadline is September 1, 2015. A shortlist of playwrights will be contacted in early October, and we will request a full-length draft of selected works at that time. Our winning playwright will be notified by December 1, 2015.
