Building on the success of our last four festivals, our Short New Play Festival is returning in this July. Six short plays will be selected from an open-submission process and presented in staged readings along side two short plays by commissioned writers, LEE BLESSING and ELLEN MCLAUGHLIN.
Plays will be selected based on:
Relevance to Red Bull Theater’s mission
Incorporation of the theme: “UNCONTROLLED PASSIONS”
Excellence of the work
Using the theme “Uncontrolled Passions,” write a short play of no more than 10 minutes in length that is written in heightened language or verse, and/or using classical themes, or adapting a classical story.
SELECTED PLAYS will receive a staged reading performance in the festival, directed by MAY ADRALES and EVAN YIONULIS, with a cast of some of New York’s best actors on July 13, 2015.
