TBT is dedicated to producing staged readings of full-length new work. For our purposes, "new work" means that the play has never been fully produced. Previous readings and workshops do not render the piece ineligible. We are creating a forum for conversation, and as such we are seeking plays that raise questions about pertinent social, political, or environmental issues of our time.
The most recent call for submissions was for plays by women, about women. We invited all woman-identifying playwrights to submit a piece that both highlights a significant social, political, or environmental issue AND features woman-identifying characters. Topics included, but were not limited to, women's rights and gender inequality. For instance, plays about immigration or the impact of global warming that centers around female characters were just as eligible as plays about unequal pay or reproductive rights, so long as the playwright also identifies as a woman.
Submissions closed on October 31. We will announce the chosen play in late-December or early-January. The reading will take place in Orange County, California in March 2018.
