The program for FireWorks 2017 has just been announced, three plays focusing on friendships among women.
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST TRANSMISSION by Natalie Frijia; SURRENDER DOROTHY by Liz Best; POSE BALL by Caitie Graham. Note: 2017-2018 is the Alumnae’s 100th anniversary—the season is therefore dedicated to plays by women, directed by women.
Check the descriptions of the three plays at alumnaetheatre.com/directors.html , choose which play or plays you are interested in pitching for. Send your resume and a short (2-3 sentences) statement about which play and why. If you are chosen for an interview, you will be given access to the scripts and asked to prepare a detailed outline of your vision for the production. Note: FireWorks is a development festival, dramaturgy will continue right through production, and the writer will be part of the process.
FireWorks 2017 runs November 8 to 26, 2017 in the Studio. Each play runs for one week, Wednesday to Sunday, with two performances on Saturday.
To apply: send your resume and statement by 28 April to:
