|Crossing Our Red Sea – March 10-26
A surprising show revealing life’s truths found in the Passover story…This is not a re-enactment of the exodus story, but a show that performs the Haggadah using thought-provoking contemporary stories, poems, plays and songs that will make you laugh and cry. There are many parts to the Haggadah and most have universal themes…submit material that addresses one of these themes but be sure it is a contemporary take on this very old story NOT a re-telling of the story in ancient times.
Deadline for submissions: November 15, 2017
Okay, you’re Jewish, that’s a good start, but how “Jewish” do you have to write? When submitting material, consider the following parameters for your submission:
Please check the themes of the season and submit accordingly. We will not accept late submissions this year. Thank you!
Please make sure your name and title of your work appear on your submission.
An element of Jewish resonance is important, but your submission does not need to feature being Jewish as the prominent theme or subject.
Feature women or a woman’s point of view, but not exclusively. Male characters are welcome.
Short one-acts (10 minutes max) and monologues (7 minutes max) are preferred. Will read full-length, but unlikely will produce.
1500 words or less preferred
Must be topical for the 21st century. While we consider plays set in another time period, we mostly select contemporary pieces.
Small cast a must. One-person shows okay.
Previously produced or published work is welcome. Please include production and/or publication history. A new version of a classic or an adaptation from another medium would definitely be of interest.
Although the primary focus of the JWT is on the writing, music is often a part of our events. We encourage composers, song-writers, and performers to submit individual work. Musicals are welcome.
Submit your material to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to let us know the salon you are submitting for in the subject line of your email.
