The Prince William Sound Community College Last Frontier Theatre Conference, featuring Edward Albee and the Edward Albee Last Frontier Playwright Award, is preparing for the 10th annual Last Frontier Theater Conference June 15-24.
Plays are being sought for the Play Lab at the conference. The lab is a workshop for the staged readings of new works. Approxi-mately 16 new works (eight full-length and eight one-act plays) will be selected for the lab. Three plays will receive the Last Frontier New Play Award.
The awards will be presented at a gala event June 22. Additional plays will be recognized with Panelists' and Audience Choice awards.
Authors of accepted plays must be registered for the conference and be present at the lab for the public reading.
Playwrights may bring their own readers, or readers will be provided at no charge. Playwrights are expected to introduce the play and set the scene for the audience before the reading.
Full-length play submissions must include a 50-word synopsis, a cast list with brief character descriptions, an estimation of reading time, the playwright's name on the title page only, three copies of the script, and a 100-word biography and a photo for publication in the program booklet (after acceptance).
Submissions may have had staged readings or amateur-college productions but no professional productions. Full-length plays will be considered and read but reading spaces for full-length plays will be limited in order to hear the maximum number of new voices.
No children's plays or musicals will be accepted, no reading fee is charged and scripts will not be returned. The postmark deadline is March 1.
Plays also are sought for the 10-Minute Play Development Work-shop of the conference. These plays will be presented in a workshop of staged readings. Panelists' and Audience Choice awards will be presented at the gala event. Full-length play submission guidelines apply.
