Broadway Bound Theatre Festival
New York, NY 10036
Recognizing that existing theatre is inherently exclusionary and holds detrimental biases, Broadway Bound Theatre Festival is changing its mission statement and creating a plan of action that is explicitely anti-racist. As Andre Lorde has claimed: "it is not difference that immobilizes, but silence."
We would like to invite Black playwrights, theatre-makers, and composers to submit their new scripts to BBTF for a spot in our 2021 Winter Festival at Theatre Row in Manhattan. We’ve waived both our $25 Reader Fee for all submissions and the $1000 Acceptance Fee, if your play or musical is selected. Musicals: Max 120 minutes plus a 10 minute intermission. Straight plays: Max 90 minutes in length; min 60 minutes with no intermission. This is an opportunity EXCLUSIVE TO BLACK ARTISTS. Submissions close Sept. 6, 2020 at midnight EST. You will be notified within 2 weeks of that date and receive a short critique of your work. Submit your finished script and complete the application on broadwayboundfestival.com.
No justice, no peace. The theater community needs to dismantle its system. BBTF is officially committed to lifelong plans of action and advocacy for Black lives. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
