Submissions are now being accepted for this year's StoFest: A New One-Act Play Festival, produced by the Independent Theatre Collective in Wheeling, WV. In its first year, StoFest produced fifteen plays by ten different WV-based writers and featured well over twenty local
performers. This year, they are opening the submission in-box to playwrights within the state of West Virginia and all bordering states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland & Virginia. Also
different from last year, they plan on running the selected plays for multiple performances. Depending on what is accepted, ITC's goal is to have two to three different line-ups of new shows to run in rep this October.
As was the case with last year, ITC's plan is to anchor each evening of shows with a play from Wheeling playwright Tom Stobart's catalog.
This submission has only a restriction on time: ITC will only consider one-act plays 10 to 30 minutes in length. Plays will be selected by members of the ITC Collaborative Council. Submissions will close Friday, August 20, 2010. All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you have any questions, though, please do not hesitate to drop them a line. A broad release regarding submissions will be sent to various outlets later this weekend. Please feel free to spread the word amongst your networks.
