Pittsburgh New Works Festival seeks 1-act plays

Mary Pickels
"When Romcoms Go Bad," produced by Prime Stage Theatre.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
