Prologue Theatre Co. Seeks Short Scripts

Prologue Theatre Co. seeks new short scripts for our fifth annual Landmark Festival. This year’s theme (to which submitted scripts should be related) is “Shattered Reason" Scripts should be about 10 minutes long and not yet produced in Chicago. Selected scripts will be produced in the spring of 2014. Send full script to Whitney Morse, Literary and Casting Director at literary@prologuetheatreco.org by March 15th. Please include a cover letter indicating your level of interest in participating in script development sessions in advance of the festival (note: not being interested/available for script development will not affect a script’s eligibility to be produced as part of the festival). More information about the festival, including detailed information on what kind of plays we’d like to receive, can be found at our website: www.prologuetheatreco.org.

The theme for our season is "Shattered Reason." This is a theme that applies in several different ways to the shows we'll be producing this season - so don't feel as though you need to take the prompt literally. We strive for a variety of tones, styles, and tempos throughout the festival - comedy is just as welcome as tragedy. Also keep our mission in mind as you are writing:

The Past is Prologue. We produce new and forgotten works from underrepresented voices. In this way, we relate the experiences of yesterday with the lives of today.
