Pittsburgh New Works Festival seeks 1-act plays
Time is running out. Playwrights with one-act stories, never before produced, may submit to the Pittsburgh New Works Festival through April 5.
Twelve, one-act plays will be selected for performance as mainstage productions for the festival’s 29th season, which begins in September.
An additional six plays will be chosen for the festival’s LabWorks staged reading series, performed on the last two Sundays in August.
Play guidelines include:
• No less than 15 minutes long
• No more than 45 minutes long
• Limited number of scenes and simple scene changes
• No more than eight actors
• No musicals
• Simple sets, costumes, and props
• Plays may have been “read,” but never produced (workshops and readings are acceptable)
Playwrights are limited to one submission each year.
