Rising Circle Theater Collective is currently accepting applications for INKtank lab for playwrights of color. Four writers of color are selected to participate in a free, rigorous, 12-week writers lab, which culminates in a new play reading festival. Honorarium provided.
Application and additional information here: https://risingcircle.submittable.com/submit
Deadline: Friday, January 12, 2018
Application Fee: None
Eligibility: Playwrights of color are invited to submit a new draft of a full-length original play (at this time, no musicals or solo shows) with an Artist Statement and Resume.
Each play MUST have the following in order to comply with our culminating project vision:
• Be in line with Rising Circle's mission statement to expand the scope of storytelling on the American stage by giving voice to unheard stories of people of color.
• First drafts of full-length scripts. (We will accept scripts in raw and early stages of development.)
• 5-ACTOR maximum. (No exceptions. If your play has more than 5 characters, the text must support double casting.)
The playwright will commit to workshopping the submitted play over the course of the 12-week playwrights lab. NYC-area only.
