|Now in its 7th season, the Headwaters New Play Festival is a weeklong workshop where selected plays are developed with a team of professional theatre artists and receive public readings. Headwaters is the source of new plays of the West. However, our definition of West is extremely broad. It may include plays set in the current, historic, or mythic western United States; plays that reflect the diverse cultures and experiences of the West; plays that examine the American urban/rural divide; and plays that completely re-imagine what “West” means.
To be considered for the Headwaters New Play Festival, a play must never have had a professional production and the playwright must be available to attend the workshop week of August 20th, 2018. Festival dates are August 24th and 25th, 2018.
Since 2015’s festival, our goal has been to more accurately reflect the diversity of human experience by reserving one of our two slots for women and playwrights of color. We are seeking full-length plays, one submission per playwright.
