Call for Submissions
SpeakEasy Stage Company is seeking proposals from New England based playwrights for currently unwritten, location-specific, ten-minute monologues for our devised piece, The Boston Project: Project Resilience.
We Bostonians have always been known for our bold and determined nature, but this past year has presented challenges that have tested even the toughest among us. To celebrate the distinct, enduring spirit of this great city, SpeakEasy is commissioning five Boston playwrights to each write a brand-new, site-specific, ten-minute play that explores and celebrates the various forms of resilience that see us through each day.
Each commissioned playwright will receive a stipend of $500.
To be considered for The Boston Project: Project Resilience, please submit by 8pm EST on February 15th, 2021:
All materials should be submitted in .pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include all materials in a single email.
Please note: The intention of The Boston Project is to develop plays that legitimize Boston as a beautifully complex setting. It is crucial that playwrights have strong roots in the greater Boston area, consider themselves to be “local” playwrights, and have a deep and thorough understanding of the city and its arts community.
Proposal Submission Deadline: February 15, 2021
Selections Announced: March 1, 2021
