Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) seeks submissions for the 15th Annual TRU VOICES New Plays Reading Series (deadline January 18, 2013 for non-TRU members; January 25, 2013 for TRU members). TheTRU VOICES New Plays Reading Series is a unique series geared towards nurturing the producer-writer relationship, and is particularly interested in finding producers who are looking for opportunities to develop new works. Shows selected will receive staged readings to be presented in June of 2013. Each reading will be followed by a “Dollars and Sense” panel discussion with prominent New York producers, general managers and artistic directors focusing on potential venues, marketing and budgeting of the work.
TRU welcomes both mainstream commercial works and non-traditional works, and encourages multi-cultural and minority submissions as well. “We’d love to find the next big Broadway smash, but we also understand that there are many other markets for new works. We are interested in any interesting, well written show that has a producer who is passionate about producing it,” Ost explained.
Submissions must be received by January 25, 2013 for TRU members; and January 18, 2013 for non-members. Readings will take place Monday evenings in June of 2013. There is a $25 submission fee, waived for TRU members. Guidelines and application form may be found at www.truonline.org/TRUPlays.htm or by sending an email to TRUnltd@aol.com. Submissions will not be accepted without an application.
