Polarity Ensemble Theatre is now accepting script submissions for our annual Dionysos Cup Festival of New Plays, running May 12 through May 22, 2011. The festival will feature staged readings of four new full-length works. There are no restrictions on subject or style.
The Dionysos Cup is a multi-stage development process that culminates in two staged readings for each script. Past participating playwrights have hailed it as one of the most valuable script development processes of its kind. The festival is open only to Chicago area playwrights. All four Dionysos Cup scripts will be given serious consideration for a possible eventual full production.
Scripts should be mailed to Polarity Ensemble Theatre, 135 Asbury Avenue, Evanston, IL 60202. Enclose a synopsis and let us know if the play has had any previous performances or staged readings. We are considering only full-length scripts. We will read only one script per playwright. Scripts will not be returned, so do not send your only copy. Make sure all your contact information including email address and phone number is on your script. Please also email us or enclose your script in a file on disk to make it easier to share with the reading committee. Postmark deadline is September 27, 2010. Visit www.petheatre.com for more details.
