John Roche let us know about the following:
The Hudson Valley Writers' Center is pleased to announce the inaugural HVWC New Play Reading Series for 2011, consisting of three new works presented at the Writers' Center in Sleepy Hollow (Westchester), NY. Full submission guidelines and deadlines are available online at http://www.writerscenter.org/ or http://bit.ly/HVWCPlayReading or by calling the Writers' Center. Winners will receive a cash prize of $1,000 and a public reading at the historic Writers' Center overlooking the Hudson River.
The purpose of the series is to help develop and bring attention to great new plays. The open and blind submission policy demonstrates the Centers' commitment to finding the best scripts by established and/or emerging writers. The reading committee consists of active NYC producers. Finalist scripts will be read and the winning selections made by Jane Dubin, (Tony Award-winning producer), Craig Lucas (Two-time Pulitzer Prize and two-time Tony Award nominee), as well as, Howard Meyer, (founding Artistic Director of Axial Theatre) and Josh Hecht (Drama Desk award-winning director). Each public reading will be followed by a panel discussion with the artists involved in the production to assist in the play's further development.
Producers, theatre companies and writers are invited to submit new works that are commercial as well as "non-traditional" or experimental. The plays will be selected through a nation-wide blind search process. There will be a $25 application fee for each entry. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2011.
