Are you a local (in or around Gainesville, Florida) playwright? GREAT! We’d like to know you better, and maybe help you become an even better playwright by performing your original work as a staged reading with real, live actors at our annual Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase in December! This can be an invaluable experience for you, as well as for our audiences.
We can’t guarantee that outstanding shows will be later produced as mainstage plays, but it’s happened in prior years with Chuck Lipsig’s Hometown Knights in 2016, Tom Miller’s UMMU and Michael Presley Bobbitt’s Trailer Park Elegy in 2017, and Sloane Margaret’s All’s Fair in 2018.
This year’s performances will take place December 5-9. We have a limited number of slots available, and participating shows will be decided by our Dramaturgy Committee, whose decisions are final.
If you’re age 18 or younger, please submit to our Gainesville Homegrown Junior Playwrights’ Showcase!
Deadline for submissions for our 2018 Showcase has been extended to Monday, October 15, 2018, so get crackin’, and good luck!
