Forward Theater Company Announces Call for Submissions Playwrights Are Asked to Write about “Soul Food”

Posted in Διαγωνισμοί on 24 Μαρτίου, 2012 by newriters
Madison, WI – Forward Theater Company is asking authors to wax poetic about food – anything from making chocolate cookies for the first time, to unearthing a coveted secret family recipe, to a dinner party gone terribly wrong.Playwrights from across the country are invited to contribute to the company’s second monologue festival, “Soul Food,” which will be presented on November 9-11 at Overture Center. With original work by both established and up-and-coming playwrights, Forward will be assembling an engaging evening of comedy and drama that examines our relationships with comfort food, fast food, ethnic specialties, fine dining, and everything in between.
“Everyone’s got a favorite dessert, a coveted midnight snack, a go-to take-out order after a stressful day, or a recipe that reminds them of home,” said Kimberly Megna Yarnall, Forward Theater advisory company member and one of the organizers of the festival. “Food is inextricably linked with first dates in restaurants, memories of summer picnics, tailgating before the big game, and holidays at grandma’s house. I’m sure it will be the basis for a lot of great pieces.”
Artistic Director Jennifer Uphoff Gray added, “When Forward was established, one of the things we wanted to do was promote the development of new plays. This is a great way to work one-on-one with a wide variety of playwrights and get to know their writing styles.”
This event follows up Forward’s first monologue festival, which focused on monologues on the theme “The Love That Changed My Life,” and featured new work from Wisconsin writers, emerging playwrights from across the country, and more established playwrights such as Christopher Durang, Beth Henley, and Connie Congdon. Communications Director Gwen Rice explained, “The festival in 2010 was a huge success, both artistically and at the box office – we added performances and sold out every show. We’re very excited to challenge writers, directors, and actors with a new batch of plays themed around food experiences and obsessions.”
Playwrights are asked to send their previously unproduced, original monologues on the theme, “Soul Food.” to grice@forwardtheater.com. (There is no entry fee for the first two submissions from each author.) Scripts should be ten minutes long or less, and require minimal sets, props, and costumes. Submissions will be accepted until July 1 and the winners will be announced on or before October 1, 2012. Each winning playwright will receive two complimentary tickets to the opening night performance.
For more information, please visit forwardtheater.com, or email Gwendolyn Rice at grice@forwardtheater.com.
