|The Oklahoma City Theatre Company annual Native American New Play Festival is at the heart of our regular season offerings. We invite Native American, Alaska Native, Hawaiian, First Nations and Indigenous Mexico playwrights to submit full-length scripts (60 pages or more) written for the stage from an Indigenous perspective. All themes and topics are welcomed. Plays may focus on historical or present-day issues. We are especially interested in plays that center on an Oklahoma tribe and tribal history within the state.
Selection Process: Full length plays are evaluated by a panel comprised of Native American theatre artists and invested community members. The panel will select 2-3 plays for a staged reading during the festival based on originality, theatricality, and execution. Finalist will receive a staged reading with actors and a director during the festival weekend events. An audience talk back will follow the readings. A fully realized production will be awarded to one of the staged reading finalists and showcased as the featured production the following festival year during the Oklahoma City Theatre Company’s regular season.
Submissions will only be accepted electronically in either Word or PDF format. Scripts must conform to industry standard play-script format (one-inch margins, #12 Times or Courier font, all pages numbered). We welcome plays that have had previous workshops and productions within the last five years. Please include a production history if applicable. Include a title page with full contact information, (mailing address, phone numbers, Email address) a draft or revision date and a character breakdown at the beginning of your script. Please provide a biography of 100 words and provide a photo of at least 300 dpi. Please label all attachment as follows: Title of the play Author’s Last Name, First Initial.
