Building Bridges

 Now Accepting Short Play Submissions!

This Cut to The Chase Theme will explore theatre as the art of empathy. In a time of great division, anger, and fear, can we still find our way to seeing the basic humanity that joins us all? Your piece can explore any element of the theme, and how we can, or cannot, overcome the breakdown of communication. 

Deadline And Criteria:

Submissions are limited to 10 minute pieces.
Submission deadline is Tuesday, April 30th 2019. 
We are accepting submissions from Chicago playwrights only. 
Please submit to Mark Pracht:
Final selections will be made before before Saturday, June 1st 2019.
Selected scripts will have 6 performances between 8/11/2019 and 8/21/2019.
There is no pay.
