Double (XX) Fest 2.0: Submissions Wanted!

Double (XX) Fest 2011

Calling All Female Playwrights!

     If you are interested in being a part of an annual playwrights’ festival featuring women writers and directors, then Stone Soup’s Double (XX) Fest 2.0 is for you!

     For four years, Stone Soup Theatre produced (along with a team of directors and actors) up to fourteen original works in the Downstage theatre each spring, formerly known as “Outside the Box”.

In 2011, we tried something different, and the Double (XX) Fest was born! For three weeks, using both Up- and DownStages in April 2011, we featured short, fully-produced works, an all-female 24-Hour festival, 8 readings and 2 playwriting workshops, all showcasing exclusively the work of female playwrights and directors.

What will 2012 bring? Another 24-hour festival and kickoff party? Awards for the best of the fest? A critically-acclaimed headliner? All are possible, plus other tricks we may have up our collective puffy sleeves! But the absolute guarantee is several new, varied and scintillating new works by a host of talented female playwrights and directors. Submit now and throw your new work into the mix!

The Skinny:

     We are seeking original one-act plays (3-25 minutes in length), particularly 10-minute shorts written by women. Can be any subject matter with casts of both genders – must be written & will be directed by a woman.

      While we are interested in submissions from all over, we are particularly interested in the work of local and NW women. Special consideration will be given during the final tier of the selection process to those who are able to find their own directors/casts.
