Call for Submissions: Search for Plays Confronting Racial/ Ethnic Issues: The 2012 Ruby Lloyd Apsey Award


Via Writers for Diversity: Deadline: 7 September 2012

Every year, Theatre UAB conducts a search for new and original full-length plays confronting racial or ethnic issues, especially those calling for ethnically diverse and/or multi-racial casting. The Apsey Award consists of a $1000 prize plus a staged reading and audience talk-back at Theatre UAB.

We prefer recyclable hard-copy submissions, but we do accept electronic submissions PROVIDED each submission is a SINGLE FILE containing a brief synopsis of the play and a cover letter giving highlights of the author's theatre experience. Next submission period: June 1st - September 7th, 2012.

The Apsey winner will be a play with intriguing characters, an engrossing plot, a strong sense of the true power of live performance, meaty roles for university-level actors, and a fresh examination of race relations in America with genuinely challenging insights. Produced scripts are welcome, but preference will be given to world premieres.

Each submission must include:

  • a brief synopsis of the play
  • a cover letter giving highlights of the author's theatre experience

Send all scripts to:
