2018 Latinx New Play Festival

August 2018

Rehearsal Dates: Early August 2018

San Diego Repertory Theatre 

San Diego Repertory Theatre and Amigos del REP are proud to announce open submissions to the 2018 Latinx New Play Festival, a weekend of new play readings by Latinx playwrights. The festival will showcase four new Latinx plays by Latinx playwrights. The 2018 Latinx New Play Festival seeks to expand the presence of Latinx stories and artists on the American stage that spotlight the broad range of today’s Latinx experience. The festival will invite artistic directors, literary managers, and producers to attend a weekend of readings showcasing the work of Latinx actors, directors, and designers. Past selections include “Fabulous Monsters” by Diana Burbano, “El Cipitio: A Salvadorian Odyssey” by Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza with Randy Ertll, “Guadalupe in the Guest Room” by Tony Meneses and “(w)holeness” by Lily Padilla. The festival will take place at The Lyceum Theatres in Horton Plaza. 

Festival Details

Four scripts will be selected to be rehearsed over the course of one week, resulting in a public music-stand reading. Readings will be rehearsed early August 2018; combined rehearsal and performance will not exceed 29 hours. Each selected script will be assigned a Latinx director and actors (unless otherwise indicated by the script). 

Eligibility

Festival submissions are open to self-identifying Latinx playwrights living in the United States and Mexico. Scripts may be in English or English with some Spanish or another Language (scripts with a language other than English must be accompanied by an English translation).

Plays must be unpublished, professionally unproduced, and not currently under option at the time of submission.   

At this time, only full length (at least 80 minutes), non-musicals, with cast size under eight will be considered. Plays with music will be considered as resources allow (cast-size less than ten, piano only). Solo pieces will also be considered. Submissions are limited to two scripts per artist.
