Project Vox is seeking five to ten original scripts about the abuse of power and control in domestic relationships. These scripts will be performed in the Triangle Area as a fundraiser for Project Vox in October 2014.
- All script submissions must be original. The overall topic is open, but the plot must include a strong domestic violence component. Scripts that have been work shopped or presented as staged readings will be considered. We are also accepting monologues/spoken word/poetry submissions.
- All script submissions may be sent via email as an attachment directly to Project Vox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Length should be twenty (20) minutes or less, with 20 minutes equaling 20 pages of dialogue in play script format. (For reference, see http://nycp.blogspot.com/p/playscript-formatting-template.html). Please submit scripts as MS Word files.
- On the title page of submission, include your name, e-mail address, contact phone number, and a brief synopsis of the play.
- Performances are to be staged with minimal sets and lighting. Script requirements should be limited to small set pieces, such as chairs and tables, and general lighting.
- Deadline for submission is January 15, 2014. Submitters will be contacted by June 15, 2014 about the selection outcome. A list of chosen scripts will be published on the websites and Facebook pages of Project Vox.
