Dear Colleagues:

 

Pavement Productions, my production company in Portland, Oregon, is putting out a call for short plays inspired by playwright Alfred Jarry's horrible creature, Ubu Roi.  Details follow below.

 

Thanks,

 

Steve Patterson

UBU LIVES!

 

Pavement Productions, an independent theatre company in Portland, Oregon, dedicated to the development and staging of new scripts, announces a call for 10-minute plays for UBU LIVES!—an anthology production of plays inspired by Ubu Roi, the monstrous character created by surrealist/dada playwright Alfred Jarry.  (For more information, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubu_Roi). 

 

Plays should be in English, have no more than six characters, and require minimal staging.  Plays will be initially presented as a staged or concert reading, with a possible full production at a later date.  There will be no pay for the reading, but, if the show goes to full production, playwrights will receive a percentage of the box office.  There are no reading fees.  Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2007.  Please send submissions as Microsoft Word or PDF files to Steve Patterson at splatterson@mindspring.com  Requests for further information can be sent to the same e-mail address. 

 

Pavement Productions has been developing and producing new, wild, and semi-dangerous works since 1990 and has presented over 30 world premieres.  Pavement has especially had success with its anthology shows of short plays built around a central theme.  Past anthology shows have included “Behind the Eyes” (plays about dreams), “Between the Sheets” (plays about sex), and “Life and Death on the American Road” (plays about road trips). 

 

Pere Ubu is also the name of a strange and wonderful rock band.

Never met Mr Ubu before but happy to make his acquaintance.

I am interested in submitting, but not exactly clear what you are looking for - just anything that feels abstract/surreal? or something more specific to Ubu? 

 

Thanks

That's really up to you.  We're leaving it pretty open, so that if someone wants to write something with Ubu in it, fine...if somebody is inspired to do something surreal or dadist, that's fine too.  Really our criteria are artistic excellence and how the pieces fit together to make an evening of theatre.

Steve

Wit, brilliance, and grace...the usual.  Well, with Ubu, maybe not grace.
