Taboo is looking for submissions again! We have wanted to do this for a while and we are very excited that now is the time. This year, instead of Grand Guignol plays, we are looking for original adult fairy tales, exploring diverse taboos. Our showcase will have the theme “The Uncanny: When the Fantasy is Too Real.”
Here are the requirements:
–Submissions must be accompanied by a 150-250 word description of which taboo your work is exploring and how.
–The plays can be either completely original, adaptations of classical works or other material that fits the requirements of this genre.
–The plays must be 10-25 minutes long.
–The plays should not require elaborate sets, props or costumes.
–Submissions may consist of one or more plays.
–Completed drafts are preferred but not absolutely necessary.
–Please include with your submission any past writing and theatre credits.
–Submissions will be accepted no later than February 15, 2016.
–Chosen submissions will be announced by March 1, 2016.
The accepted plays will be workshopped during early spring (the exact dates will be determined by the number of shows accepted). The selected works will then be rehearsed and mounted over the following months, with exact details and dates to be announced at a later time.
Submissions can be sent to Taboo Theatre’s Artistic Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
