1-Page Play Experiment

What is The 1-Page Play Experiment?

Into the beaker we pour a playwright who can think outside the box and create a piece of theatre that is art to hang on the wall, literature to read, and a play to be performed.  Add a single sheet of paper.  Simmer over a Bunsen burner until fire ignites the sky.  Send it off to GAN-e-meed Theatre Project who will curate the top 15 plays.  These top 15 plays will be displayed gallery-style during Not A Box New Play Festival in the Fall of 2012, performed as staged readings with professional theatre artists, and voted on by the audience.  The 5 audience picks will go on to be produced in full during the following season.

Why me?

Playwrights need a little adventure too.  There are only so many 1-minute, 10-minute, and 90-minute plays one can write.  Here’s your chance to go somewhere bold, fast, and colorful.  Take a chance and leap.  Think with your visual brain and see what it does to your writing.  This is, in the end, an experiment.  Why not see what bubbles?
