ORLANDO, Fla. - Jan. 20, 2014 - PRLog -- Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF is seeking new full-length plays that speak to the human condition in a contemporary world. Topics may range from international headlines to interpersonal relationships, and both comedies and dramas are welcome. Seven of the new works submitted will be selected for readings in the Theater’s annual new play festival PlayFest in November 2014, and considered for fully staged productions in future seasons. All submissions are due on or before March 1, 2014. For a complete list of submission guidelines, visit www.orlandoshakes.org/playfest (http://www.orlandoshakes.org/playfest).

PlayFest is a nationally recognized program and represents one of the strongest commitments to new plays. The annual weekend of staged readings is a direct pipeline to full productions in Orlando Shakes’ Signature Series. Over the years, Orlando Shakes has helped nurture and develop over 100 new plays – many of which have received subsequent productions in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, and Washington D.C. PlayFest playwright alums include Lee Blessing, Steve Yockey, Lauren Gunderson, Jon Jory, and Jeffrey Hatcher.

Orlando Shakespeare Theater is supported by United Arts of Central Florida, host of power2give.org/centralflorida, and the collaborative Campaign for the Arts. Orlando Shakespeare Theater is also sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
