KC MELTING POT THEATRE
New Play Festival 2021
Call for Scripts
KC Melting Pot Theatre (Kansas City, MO) is calling for
original, full length plays by Black playwrights. The play
should be a new work with no production history (readings are
acceptable). Last year we saw our inaugural festival end with
both the first place and second place winner being selected for
a full production as part of our 2020-2021 season which will
resume in February 2021. This year, we will narrow down the
pieces we receive to three finalists. The finalists will have
their work performed as a staged reading during our New Play
Festival July 9 – 11, 2021. From these pieces, one winner will
be chosen to receive a workshop production in 2022. This is a
development opportunity, which means it is our goal to provide a
platform and support system to emerging playwrights that will
ensure they end up writing the exact story they set out to tell.
The development process for the winning play will include table
readings with seasoned actors and experienced directors, Q &A
sessions between the cast and playwright and a fully rehearsed
show culminating in a workshop production that will incorporate
at least two talkbacks with the audience. There are no
restrictions on theme and the play can be a comedy, drama,
futuristic, abstract, or otherwise experimental piece. We are
not accepting musicals, children shows nor one person shows at
this time.
TO SUBMIT:
1 – Email your play to newplays@kcmeltingpot.com.
2 – The play should be either a Word or pdf document in 12pt
font. Preferably Times New Roman or New Courier.
3 – Please do not submit a resume or bio. All we need is the
script. The script should include a title page with your name
and email address, a breakdown of the cast (name age,
race/ethnicity, gender if these items matter) and numbered
pages.
4 – Please include a 3-5 sentence synopsis of the play.
Deadline for submissions is December 31, 2020 or the first 50
submissions. Finalists will be notified via email by May 10,
2020.
