|Submission Call for Gay4Detroit Festival
July 1, 2020
The Ringwald Theatre is sounding a call for new, original one-act plays to be performed at their annual Gay4Detroit Festival (previously the GPS Festival) in September 2020. The Detroit-area’s only LGBTQ+ short play festival is striving to provide early-career writers the opportunity to see their work produced, giving them what is oft-needed exposure.
The plays submitted should have a performance time of 30 minutes or less and deal directly with issues or characters that are identified as LGBTQ+, or contain a queer sensibility. In addition, this year the scripts must exclusively be one- or two-person shows that deal specifically with the quarantine and/or the pandemic.
From those performed, an audience poll will be conducted to select one winning script, actor, actress, and director.
All submissions must be submitted electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The submitted script must be the script proposed for presentation, with no major alterations necessary.
Please provide an approximate running time and a one sentence synopsis in the body of the email.
Only one entry per playwright will be accepted.
Neither fax nor paper submissions will be accepted.
Submission materials will not be returned.
Previously submitted scripts will not be eligible.
The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2020.
The final line-up will be announced August 17, 2020.
