East Village Chronicles Call for Scripts

East Village Chronicles Call for Scripts#1
Posted: 9/5/19 at 10:08pm

Now entering our 28th season, Obie Award-winning Metropolitan Playhouse is currently accepting submissions for its 15th presentation of East Village Chronicles, a festival of previously un-produced, one-act plays inspired by the diverse population, culture and history of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.  Playwrights of all races, religions, ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, backgrounds, and political views are encouraged to submit.  There is an honorarium of $100 for each script accepted for production.

Only plays pertaining specifically – though not necessarily exclusively – to the East Village and/or Lower East Side of Manhattan will be considered.  Particular consideration will be given to plays that relate this season’s comprehensive theme of Dissent to this subject matter.  Playwrights are encouraged to respond directly, indirectly, and creatively to this idea; how a play about the East Village and/or Lower East Side includes Dissent is up to the playwright.

To receive the official Call for Scripts which will give more specific information, please email EVC15@metropolitanplayhouse.org.
