|Library Theater of New York
(And the Woodside Players of Queens, and The Fifth Avenue Theatre)
Since 2013, ELT has been presenting a festival of short plays (comedy, drama and musicals) by writers from around the globe, in association with the NYPL. Equity Library Theater began its life in 1943 as a sort of New York City road-show, with performances rotating among many theaters built during the Depression in branches of the New York Public Library. Today they present their works for all to view in person and in a virtual setting.
Submissions are now being accepted for the Equity Library Theater of New York Summer 2022 Virtual Play Festival. Seeking short plays (no more than 10 pp/minutes), from playwrights from across the globe. Also seeking monologues (no more than 4pp/minutes). Musicals welcome! We post your YouTube link of the performance to the festival site for voting. One submission per playwright. No submission fees. Please include name, address, telephone number and email address on your submission. We do not produce your work; we provide a virtual venue for you to present actors performing your play. There are no costs involved for anyone. Seeking actors and directors, too! Deadline: September 22. 2022 (end of summer). Email: email@example.com.
