Seeking writer-performers to create original short solo works for live and virtual performances!

 

 

WHAT: Original, un-produced, Shakespeare-Inspired Solo Pieces

(e.g. A deeper dive into a lesser known character; an exploration of your unique experience--why you’ve loved/loathed Shakespeare; etc.)

  • Running time: 10-30 minutes
  • All genres welcome (comedic, dramatic, musical, etc.)
  • Must include quotes of Shakespearean text
  • Must be able to be staged with minimal props and set (chair & table)

Each writer-performer will be paired with a director who will help get the performance on its feet.

Artists whose pieces are selected for production will be paid a stipend.

NOTE: If an artist is interested in writing a solo piece but is not an actor themself, we would also consider casting an actor to take on the role should the piece be selected for production.


WHEN: Fall 2021 (September/October)

  • Two weeks of rehearsals--evenings, Sunday-Friday
  • Two-Four performances 
    (final dates and location TBD)

Pieces will also be filmed for an online festival following public performances.
