Asphalt Jungle Shorts XIV seeking site-specific short plays (Canada)

Asphalt Jungle Shorts XIV has announced a call for plays to be performed on May 31, June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9th 2018.

What to submit: In their own words:

‘We need plays. Short plays. 1 minute to 5 minutes….if it’s set on the go – outside, up to 10 if it’s set in a bar – 13 minutes if it’s incredible and set in a bar.

This is site-specific theatre. 

We’re looking for plays that feel as if the audience is sneaking around downtown, spying on people…those are the ones that work the best…when people aren’t sure if it’s a play or not…and believe me, there’ve been a few that the audience crowded to watch that were not plays. 

We like the odd…well, odd absurd piece, but no period pieces. 

No plays set in apartments/condos/houses/front porches. Think of where and how long the audience has to stand to watch your piece.’

For more details on what they are looking for, options for where to set your play, and examples, please review the entire submission call.

How to apply: 

  • Send .doc or .pdf
  • Send one copy blind, and another will all your contact info and name.
  • In the subject of your email put the name of your play and AJS XV
  • They also ask “Please like Flush Ink Productions on Facebook – Page, or join Flush Ink Productions – Group, to keep up with what we’re doing.”

Deadline: 1 March 2018
