CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! ACTOR’S EXPRESS VIRTUAL THRESHOLD READING SERIES!

Actor’s Express seeks submissions of plays by Atlanta and Georgia-based playwrights for the next installment of our Virtual Threshold reading series. This annual series of play readings (with a primary focus on local playwrights) transitioned to an online format at the onset of the COVID pandemic. Recent playwrights have included Skye Passmore, Natasha Patel, Daryl Lisa Fazio, Jireh Breon Holder and Margaret Baldwin. Readings will take place during the month of May. We will consider both full-length and short plays. Plays should be limited to fewer than seven actors. We will consider all work from local playwrights. Actor’s Express is particularly interested in aesthetically adventurous work that authentically centers BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ experiences, as well as stories from other marginalized communities and intersectional experiences. Playwrights should submit their work by Friday, March 12 at noon EST. Please email submissions (Word or PDF only) to Artistic Director Freddie Ashley at [email protected]. All playwrights who submit work will be notified about the final status of their submission one way or the other.
