Rorschach Theatre launches call for local playwright submissions

Rorschach Theatre seeks full-length plays from DC-area playwrights for developmental workshops and public readings from March 30 to April 3, 2023. Scripts must be unproduced and unpublished; full-length (60-120 pages); and utilize magic realism or otherwise “impossible” theatre.

Playwrights participating in MAGIC IN ROUGH SPACES, one of whom will be DC-based, will spend about 10 hours in person with a director, dramaturg, actors, and designers to set and achieve goals for their new work. The playwrights will spend up to an additional 10 hours working virtually with the team over a couple of weeks leading up to the workshop weekend. The process will culminate in public performances in early April. The plays will be performed along with a theoretical design presentation and audiences will have the opportunity to talk with artists in a live post-show conversation.

Magic In Rough Spaces is accepting scripts from DC-area playwrights or BY INVITATION for playwrights not based in the DC area.
