A Play, A Pie and A Pint — as the very proud recipients of a grant from the Knight Foundation, Tiny Dynamite is now looking for scripts for our performance project, A Play, a Pie and a Pint. About the project: A Play, a Pie, and a Pint is based on the successful performance phenomena from the UK (where they recently celebrated their 200th play in 6 years).
The premise is simple: plays are performed at a non- traditional time (6pm) on days when most other theaters are often dark (Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Our plan is to produce this model in Philadelphia as a means of introducing new audiences to our city?s theatre experience whilst providing an outlet for the work of both established and emerging local artists.
Potential patrons, primarily people who are not regular theater-goers, are enticed into the experience with the promise of an after-work play, pie and pint. What we are looking for: one act plays that run between 45 – 60 mins. Small cast, simple staging aimed at both the regular theatre goer and the new theatre goer who just wants to chill out after work and have some entertainment, a pie and a pint.
All genres accepted. Deadline for Spring season – November 30th 2011.
We will be producing a total of eight plays in our first year and will be including a mixture of British, American and local Philadelphia work. Please contact us for any additional information you may require. Scripts can be sent to Emma Gibson: 5 Four Winds Lane, Malvern, PA 19355 or to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please send as a PDF or in a MAC friendly format. Useful links http://www.tinydynamite.org http://www.playpiepint.com
