Overtime Theatre San Antonio Seeks Plays by Female-Identifying Playwrights -- Submission Deadline February 19, 2022
The Overtime Theater in San Antonio, Texas is seeking new works from playwrights who self-identify as women, transwomen, or nonbinary individuals for its 2022 New Play Development Series. The chosen play will be given a staged reading at the Overtime Theater on March 10 in celebration of Women’s History Month. The script submissions window is open from Feb. 8, 2022 until 11:59 p.m. Feb. 19, 2022.
Though full-length plays are welcome, the Overtime especially seeks previously unproduced one-act plays that require one to four actors, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. The chosen play (or plays) will be given two rehearsals and one staged reading, which includes an audience feedback session.
Devoted to producing new and original work, the Overtime is particularly interested in bold, innovative plays from across the female spectrum that are both provocative and entertaining.
For environmental reasons, the Overtime Theater is unable to accept script submissions delivered by mail or in person. Only submissions in a Word document or PDF will be considered. Applicants should use the title of the play as the name of the document, followed by the full name of the playwright. One play per applicant. The Overtime will accept submissions from writers based in the U.S. or Canada.
The Overtime Theater, an all-volunteer organization, compensates playwrights with one equal share of donations to our tip jar at the end of the play’s one-night presentation.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Attn: Jade Esteban Estrada, artistic director. Deadline is midnight Feb. 19, 2022.
