Call for Plays: The Love Edition 2017

Calling all playwrights at all experience levels!

Bindlestiff Studio, the nation's only theater dedicated to showcasing Filipino-American performing arts, is bringing back the LOVE and soliciting short plays to be staged in February 2017 for THE LOVE EDITION : TIME AFTER TIME.

The Love Edition has been one of our most celebrated shows, featuring short plays about Love, Heartache, and the Weirdness in between.

This year’s theme, Time After Time, will spotlight melodramas through the ages. Tales of the star-crossed and lovelorn have captivated generations of audiences across the world through soap operas, teleseryes, telenovelas, Korean dramas and the like. While the call is open to diverse and unique interpretations of love stories, we encourage writers to submit plays that embrace/celebrate/critique/reinvent the emotional spectacle of the melodrama genre.

We will be accepting electronic submissions until 12AM (PST) OCTOBER 7TH, 2016. Bindlestiff Studio does not charge reader's fees. Selected playwrights will receive a minimum of $50 and comp reservations for the run of the show.

To have your script considered for production, your script must follow the Love Edition submission guidelines:

1) Written in stage play format
2) 5-20 pages / 25 minutes or under. 5 powerful pages can impress us just as much (and probably more so) than 20 so-so pages.
3) Written around the theme described above: Time After Time.
4) Formatted as PDF, DOC, or DOCX. Include your contact info (Name, Email, and Phone).
5) Attach and email script to with “SCRIPT SUBMISSION” in the SUBJECT line by midnight October 7th.

Only 2 submissions per writer please.

*Women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals encouraged to apply.

We'll send a confirmation email upon receipt of each submission. Because of the amount of scripts received, we will be unable to give feedback on every submission. Selections will be announced in November 2016.

We look forward to reading your scripts. Show us the love!
