The Compound, a theatre collective in southwestern Louisiana, is seeking new plays for their 2012 new
play development program.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR: We’re looking for previously unproduced, full-length shows for 10 actors
or less. (Shows with a history or readings or workshops are welcome.)

WHAT KIND OF PLAY EXCITES US?: Strong stories, bold characters, plays with as much on their heart
as on their mind, plays that play with language in inventive ways, plays that explore communities and
experiences not normally represented in the theatre.

WHAT WE’RE DOING WITH THE PLAYS WE FIND: We will begin exploring new works that interest us in
a series of readings starting in 2012. From those readings, we’ll further the developmental process with
writers and plays we connect with. We are more interested in finding writers we can work with over many
projects, not just a single reading of a single play.

WHAT WE’D LIKE TO SEE: We’d like a cover letter telling us a little about you, a one-page synopsis, and
a 10-page writing sample from the play. Send your submission ATTN: Cody Daigle at
