|The Trustus Playwrights’ Festival began at Trustus Theatre in 1988. This festival accepts submissions nationally from playwrights seeking production of a full main stage production at Trustus Theatre. Past winners include David Lindsay-Abaire, Jon Tuttle, Deborah Breevort, Stephen Belber, Andrea Lepcico, and Sarah Hammond (to name a few).
Trustus Theatre selects one new play annually as the winner of the Trustus Playwrights’ Festival. Submissions should be full-length non-musical plays that have small casts (6 actors or less) and modest design needs (no fly systems or pyrotechnics please). The festival is welcoming to experimental works. The festival prefers scripts that have not been produced, and that Trustus’ production have “World Premiere” status.
The winning play will be produced in August 2021. Beyond the production, Trustus will provide winning playwright with a $700 prize, and travel and lodging for previews and opening night.
JANUARY 15, 2020 – MARCH 31, 2020
