Write – Produce – Take Action
Protest Plays wants YOU to help us get out the vote before mid-term elections!
We are looking for 1-3 minute non-partisan plays/monologues which activate audiences to vote/register to vote for the midterm elections.
Are you a theatremaker who wants to present GET OUT THE VOTE plays at your theatre? If so, please REGISTER HERE
- Plays/Monologues should:
- Be easy to stage. We’re asking theatres to perform these pieces before their shows this summer and fall, so your play needs to be flexible enough to work in front of a curtain, on a crazy multi-level set, or even in a lobby and with whatever acting talent they have involved in their current productions.
- On that note, some theatres may be thrilled by plays for kids, short musicals, plays that incorporate the ushers or FOH staff, so get creative!
- Encourage audiences to register/vote. Plays should NOT be telling audiences who/which party they should vote for.
- After you complete the form below, email your play to us:
- BLIND (no author info on script)
- In PDF format
- Saved as PLAY TITLE.pdf
Then, keep an eye out for an email from us! We’re going to use LBDI’s peer-evaluation process to select our finalists, which means each of you will read and respond to a selection of plays.
- Multiple submissions ok! But you MUST complete separate registrations for each script.
- Plays must be received by May 18th
- Peer eval window will begin May 22nd
