Introducing Co-Op Theatre East...

9:49 PM / Posted by Ashley /

One of my colleagues and closest pals, Robby and I have started a theatre company. We know it's going to be a lot of hard work to get it on its feet but we're ready to commit to it. The company is called Co-Op Theatre East and our mission statement is to create art that fosters dialogue to create social change. We provide an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers. Below is our first call for short plays, which will be performing at The Tank in September. We're taking submissions from playwrights both nationally and internationally. Below is our call. We should have our logo finished soon and our myspace page/facebook group ready to go in a few weeks.

Co-Op Theatre East (COTE) is seeking new, unpublished works for its upcoming short play festival scheduled for Fall 2008.

All submissions should:

- require small casts;
- be no more than 15 minutes in length; and,
- fit the company's mission statement: The Co-Op Theatre East believes in the power of art to foster a dialogue for social change. We provide an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers.

Four to five pieces will be selected for production as part of COTE's first short-play festival, tentatively scheduled for September 2008. We look forward to working collaboratively with participating playwrights as we develop these productions; however, as the festival is being staged as a fundraiser for Co-Op Theatre East, we cannot offer compensation to playwrights.

To submit, please send a copy of the script, along with your contact information and résumé, to cooptheatreeast@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is June 1, 2008.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Artistic Directors Ashley Marinaccio and Robert Gonyo via e-mail: cooptheatreeast@gmail.com. Additionally, please feel free to share this e-mail with friends and collaborators!

Thanks in advance, and we look forward to hearing from you!
