Stay Awake! – a new Denver-based theater company – is now accepting submissions for its inaugural 10-minute play competition. Playwrights from around the world are invited to submit a 10-minute piece for their Prism Festival of new works.
Each submitted play will be read by at least two professional theater artists. As such, they ask for no more than two submission per playwright. Plays must be no longer than 10 minutes, unproduced and original. A panel of professional theatre artists from around the US will select the winning plays. Selected plays will receive a full staging in Denver by Stay Awake! at the Work/Space located in the Rhino Arts District on Lawrence Street, October 23-November 1, 2014.
What to submit: Preference will be given to plays that embrace Stay Awake!’s mission: Stay Awake! engages with the cultural and educational experience of their region through a collectanea of innovatively staged historic and uniquely creative original theatrical works that pose philosophical questions, actively confront the status quo, empower unheard voices, and awaken change.
How to apply: Applications can be made through their online form.
