Sundog Theatre is seeking one-act plays for “Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry 2019”
This year’s theme: 2 ALTERNATE ENDINGS
This is Sundog Theatre’s 17th annual presentation of new and original, one-act plays about our favorite boats, the Staten Island Ferries.
–Original plays not previously produced/published, with a signed note affirming that.
–10-30 minutes in length and set on the Staten Island Ferry.
–Contemporary, involving 2-3 characters and requiring no special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props, and no special sound or lighting.
–No overt and unnecessary sexual/violence situations and language since we cater to a broad audience.
–No musicals, long monologues, poetry, rants, or verse.
–As in life, a little humor is good.
Plays should be written with 2 brief endings. The endings should be 1-2 pages each and be different from each other. One character will break the 4th wall-in character-explain briefly the two ending choices, asking the audience to vote on which one they wish to see.
Remuneration: Six authors will receive $100 each and be produced in our series of five February/March 2019 performances in Staten Island.
–Please send two copies, bound or stapled, blind submission (removable cover page with title, author and contacts) to: Sundog Theatre, “Scenes 2019”, PO Box 183, Staten Island, NY 10301
–Include the title of the play on each page.
–Submissions should include brief synopsis, play history, a 70-word bio and also full resume of the author.
–Should be postmarked from now until no later than December 31, 2018.
–Do not submit plays electronically.
–Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. Susan Fenley, Producer
