Other Theatre Seeks Play Submissions

Chicago's Other Theatre is currently seeking 30-minute world premiere plays for OTHER WAYS TO RESIST, its spring festival of new works. Open to both local and out-of-town candidates, the company is seeking new works exploring the performance of activism, protest in a social media space and acts of unconventional resistance.

Comments Artistic Director Carin Silkatis, “In a social and political climate of increasing polarization and extremity, Other Theatre is exploring the ways in which resistance can oppress and unwittingly recycle the tactics and structures of the very things it seeks to demolish. Peripherally, we are also interested in the ways in which people are fighting oppression that are less conventional and may not readily be labeled as political action.”

Scripts and inquiries should be sent to totcmanagingdirector@gmail.com, along with a current resume. The deadline for submissions is Monday, September 18, 2017.

Directed Nick Thornton, OTHER WAYS TO RESIST will play April 14 – May 13, 2018 at Other Theatre’s resident home, The Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. For additional information, please visit www.TheOtherTheatreCompany.com.
