One Act Play Festivals

Deadline
Ongoing

Description

Love Creek Productions has been producing in NYC for almost 30 years. We have always been interested in producing new works, especially one acts.

We produce year round, but with the "holidays" coming up now would be a good time to submit any Halloween/Thanksgiving/Hanukkah/Christmas plays you may have.

We are an acting company. Our greatest strength is young women (20 somethings) however we do have 'all types' but plays with several male characters will be harder to produce.

You can visit us on Facebook to see photos from our shows.

We charge no submission/production fees. We do not pay the playwrights but we do comp you and guest to the shows.

10-Minute Plays Reading Series

Deadline
Ongoing

Description

The Reading series is intended to create new artistic relationships with Guest Directors, Playwrights and Actors as well as provide a fun and engaging night for our audiences.

This is a great way to create a working relationship with our company and for us to get to know your work. We are looking for playwrights interested in collaborating and creating artist & audience relationships.

Readings will be performed in a Bar or Studio, therefore we are looking for works that will engage and excite our audience, go well with a few drinks and allow for socializing and fun in between plays. Comedic plays in particular will be well suited for this series, but we are open to dramatic works as well. Each month will have a new theme that all plays will interconnect and relate to each other in some way. .
