What is RAWR?
RAWR develops new theatrical work from emerging New York City-based writers in a three-stage process over six months. (Please note that writers based outside the five boroughs are not eligible for this program.) Random Access Theatre will provide direction, space, actors and mentorship through a series of progressively larger events beginning with a small table read, continuing with an invited audience read and finally a larger public staged reading. After the staged reading, Random Access Theatre Company may consider producing the work as a part of the following mainstage.
Scripts will be accepted after an in-person interview with the playwright. The deadline for submissions is January 15th 2017. RAWR is highly interested in theatre that imagines and reclaims work and themes of the past as a way to engage in modern issues. Work that adapts or enters into conversation with preexisting theatre, text, mythology, folklore etc. is very appropriate. Due to the heavy focus on script development, early-stage work is most appropriate for this series. Women, people with disabilities and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply send your script with short synopsis, and your resume (as PDF attachments please) and a short letter explaining why you think your work would be a good fit for RAWR (in the body of the email is fine) to submissionsRAWR@gmail.com
