Theatre Brut Festival Is Seeking Submissions

Theatre Brut Festival Is Seeking Submissions
New Jersey Repertory Company invites playwrights to submit plays for its Fifth Theatre Brut Short-Play Festival. The theme of the festival is “All About Eve”. Submitted works must be new, previously unproduced, unpublished, and no more than 10-15 minutes in length. Cast size should not exceed 4 (including any musicians).  The actual performance areas will be small, so keep the setting simple and prop requirements modest. Plays can be dramatic, comedic, musical, monologue, or whatever sparks your interest. Although the theme is specified, we are not prescriptive with regard to style, and how you interpret the theme is the province of each playwright.  Keep in mind that Theatre Brut seeks to foster “the creative impulse unfettered by social and artistic convention” so let your imagination soar and be adventurous.  If you have ever aspired to “experiment” or stretch the boundaries of theater, this is the time to do so. Prior festivals have received 250-300 submissions and approximately 25 plays are chosen for each event. There is no compensation and playwrights retain all copyright of their works. By submitting, playwrights agree that in future presentations and publications NJ Rep and Theatre Brut will be listed as premiering the work. Performances will be October 1 – October 8th at NJ Rep – West End Arts, Long Branch, NJ and will be supplemented by other arts events including poetry readings, an art show, photography exhibit, and other events to be announced.
 Submissions should be emailed to njrep@njrep.org. Make sure you include the full script, a brief synopsis, character description, and playwright bio. In the subject line put “Theatre Brut submission”. The deadline for submissions is May 30, 2017.
