SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY

The Strand, where women take the stage, is the only brick-and- mortar theater in Baltimore, Maryland to present outstanding works written ONLY by women artists in 2016-17! Our theme this season is journeys. 
For our popular short play festival this year, we’re seeking 10-minute plays that explore the original meaning of a journey, which in Middle English means “the distance traveled in one day.”

We are looking for short plays that are highly inventive, imaginative, and altogether powerful, with heightened language, high stakes, and strong characters. No conventional kitchen-sink or living room dramas, please.

The rules:
 10-minute plays, maximum.
 Cover Page includes title of play, synopsis, character breakdown, playwright’s name, and contact info.
 PDF only.
 Playwrights must reside in VA, DC, MD, DE, or PA.
Playwrights who are cis or trans women, of any race or country of origin, writing in English, are strongly encouraged to apply, though we are open to everyone.

Learn more about the Strand Theater at http://www.strand-theater.org/.

The application deadline has been extended to September 30th for #StageOpps subscribers. Don't forget to email specialoppscode@gmail.com to get the special code for this month's Special Opportunity!

Angels Among Us
  • Casting "Angels Among Us," a play. Synopsis: "Angels Among Us" highlights the journey of 11 characters living through the worst days of their lives, but little do they know that everything happens for a reason...even if they don't quite see any hope in their life's turning point at the time. Presented in a series of four coherent and connected vignettes, these characters learn that sometimes they have to get through absolute devastation in order to experience the divinity and joy in their lives. As they learn to overcome their fears and let go of what they can't control, they might just be able to connect with a higher part of themselves and find understanding, peace, and happiness.
