If you are a playwright, or know a playwright, please note that there are still openings for one-act plays in the lineup at Where Eagles Dare's studio theatre: 347 W. 36th St. (13th floor).
The deal is that the playwright/producer must produce the play (casting and rehearsing the actors, among many other tasks), including provision of a board operator (we can help you find one). Where Eagles Dare will provide the theatre, box-office services, and some promotion. THERE IS NO FEE. Tickets will be $15. Where Eagles Dare keeps the door.
Plays must be 45 – 60 minutes, on any subject. There are various dates and times available throughout December 2009 and January 2010. Each show will receive 3 slots in 1 week. Producers who succeed in this format are often invited back to produce under a door-deal arrangement.
We're looking for experienced producers with a script ready to put on its feet and a wide base of potential audience. Production requirements must be kept to a minimum, as the amenities of the studio theatre are spartan. But Off-Off-Broadway, sometimes two boards and a passion are all it takes!
Please send scripts, in standard playscript format* (and in MS Word), to firstname.lastname@example.org. Queries welcome.
