Geneva Theatre Guild Seeks Original Plays

The Geneva Theatre Guild is seeking original one act plays by area writers for their fifth annual Playwrights Playreadings program. The Guild’s Playwrights Playreadings program gives playwrights the opportunity to have their works evaluated and presented to the public in a staged readers’ theatre performance by local actors.

All submitted plays will be read and rated, using established criteria, by an initial submission reading committee, comprised of Guild board members and volunteers. The plays that rate highest will then be read out loud and discussed by another group, who will select the plays to be performed next February. Members of the two committees do not know the identity of the playwrights until after final decisions are made.

Script guidelines can be obtained by calling 315-789-8857, e-mailing playreading@gtglive.org and by visiting the GTG Web site at www.gtglive.org. Playwrights are limited to two submissions. Scripts should be sent to the Geneva Theatre Guild, Playwrights Playreadings, Box 424, Geneva, NY 14456. The deadline for submission is Nov. 17. Presentation of selected works will be February 6, 7 and 8, at the Geneva Free Library.
