Submitted by Nina M. Riccio on July 18, 2011

Theatre Fairfield, the producing wing of the Theatre Program at Fairfield University, seeks Connecticut-based playwrights and directors for Theatre in the Raw: The Lucille Lortel Festival of New Plays. Theatre Fairfield will commission playwrights to write new, short plays (20-30 minutes). Plays will be workshopped and produced with acting students from Fairfield University from November 2011 to March 2012. These are paid positions.

To be considered as a playwright, send a resume, letter of interest, and (1) 20-30 minute play as a writing sample. The writing sample should include at least one but preferably more female characters. Selected playwrights will then write a new play for the festival and be involved in the workshop process.

To be considered as a director, send a resume and letter of interest highlighting any experience you have with new play development. Send materials electronically to Mariah Sage, assistant professor of theatre, All materials are due August 1, 2011.
