What counts as 'a queer play'?
For the purpose of this project, a queer play is defined as any script featuring at least one queer character. The Reminder Plays Project is committed to eliminating theatrical gatekeeping and to assembling a library that contains all the multitudes and intersections of queer experiences.
Sounds neat, but I don't have a queer play. How can I help?
Hooray! Thank you for your enthusiasm! Here's how you can help:
Like & Share the project's social medias.
Get in touch if you're interested in reading & evaluating scripts for eligibility.
Feeling wealthy? Drop Val a line via the contact form to arrange a donation.
Make sure all your queer Philly playwright friends know about this opportunity.
What do you mean by 'Philadelphia playwright'?
For the purpose of this project, a Philadelphia playwright is a playwright who lives in the greater Philadelphia area: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties. Phases 2 & 3 of the project will target queer playwrights across the entire US.
$50? What's the catch?
So long as you & your play meet the submission criteria, there's no catch.
Why is your logo a dinosaur?
It's not. That's just a wix stock image I'm using until I can hire a graphic designer.
What happens to my script once I submit it?
The Reminder Plays Project is committed to eliminating theatrical gatekeeping. Your script will not be evaluated on a basis of craft, taste, producability, etc. (We do ask that the script is production-ready by your consideration & could be reproduced without your direct involvement.) A panel of readers will read your entire script to confirm that it meets eligibility criteria and is not racist, transphobic, misogynistic, or any other such bullshit. Val will then be in touch to organize paying you your $50 honorarium and to coordinate your social media feature. During the month of October, the RPP will feature you & your play on our Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram accounts.
How do I submit my play?
