SIN MUROS: A Latina/o Theatre Festival
January 31 – February 3, 2019
Submissions are now being accepted for the second-annual Sin Muros: A Latina/o Theatre Festival at Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, TX.
Stages celebrates the range of Latina/o voices and stories reflecting the diversity of local Texas communities with the second-annual Sin Muros: A Latina/o Theatre Festival. The festival weekend will be filled with public events for audiences and local theatre-makers, including readings, workshops and networking opportunities.
Three scripts will be selected to be workshopped over a one-week period, resulting in public readings/showings. Readings will be produced under AEA Staged Reading 29 Hour contract, allowing twenty-nine hours of rehearsal and performance combined. Each script will be assigned a director and actors. Playwrights must be in the rehearsal room and may rewrite as little or as much as they prefer. An honorarium, travel and lodging will be provided by the festival to selected playwrights.
Works by Latina/o playwrights, either Texas born, raised or based in Texas will be considered. Submissions in both English and Spanish will be accepted. Submissions are limited to one play per playwright. Selection will be based upon:
Excellence in the writing craft of the play
Originality in the voice of the play
Potential impact for the artist, field and/or audience.
Only new full-length pieces that have not yet received a full-production or been reviewed will be considered. Solo shows are eligible for consideration. Playwrights must be available to be in-residence in Houston from January 28 – February 3.
Sin Muros: A Latina/o Theatre Festival is committed to gender equity/parity.
