Call for Plays: CSM is seeking one-act play submissions
Thursday, Jul. 15, 2021

OMAHA, NEB. – College of Saint Mary is currently accepting one-act play scripts as part of the ‘New Works’ initiative. The University says it’s looking for original works by theatre playwrights across the nation, specifically those with all-female casts.

“This year we’re seeking scripts with an emphasis on code switching,” says Sarah Klocke, associate professor and program director for theatre and communication at CSM. “We are particularly interested in stories that incorporate more than one language, with an emphasis on the inclusion of Spanish.” Klocke added that submissions may address any theme as long as code switching is utilized.

A small committee will review each submission and a winner will be chosen this fall. College of Saint Mary students will participate in a staged reading of the winning submission in spring of 2022.

“It’s a great opportunity for our students to participate in this process and work on a completely original work of art.”

The selected script will be published in the 2022 edition of The Saint Mary’s Review, CSM’s literary publication. The playwright of the selected script will receive a $250 guest lecture stipend and will join the cast via Zoom for table work.

“Although theatre has made great strides, the art form is still in desperate need for more scripts predominantly featuring female characters,” says Klocke. “Being an all-women’s university, we’d like to focus on original works that feature a strong female presence and reflect the values of CSM as a whole.”

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, Sept. 13. To submit a script for consideration or for more information, contact Sarah Klocke at sklocke@csm.edu or 402-399-2619.
