Fire up your flux capacitors, polish your wands, and rev up your chainsaws—here comes The Pub from Another World! San Francisco Theater Pub presents a night of short sci-fi/fantasy/horror plays. The performances will primarily be staged readings, with some being off-book at the director’s/actors’ discretion. We are now accepting submissions through March 1, 2013. And mark your calendars, the show is May 20, 2013!
- Local, Bay Area playwrights only. Exceptions may be made if you are from an alternate universe.
- Plays must be no more than 15 minutes long. We would prefer plays in the 10- to 15-minute range, but shorter pieces will be considered.
- Plays will be performed in a bar, but they do not have to be set in a bar. Although practical concerns make simple settings easier to stage, we encourage writers to transform the space into a starship bridge, a Balrog-guarded bridge, or an evil killer bridge through dialogue or stage directions, which may be read.
- We are looking for all types of plays: comedy, drama, romance, experimental, etc. The only requirement is that they include significant elements of sci-fi/fantasy/horror.
Plays should be submitted electronically as a DOC or PDF with the playwright’s name and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “First Name, Last Name – The Pub from Another World Submission.”
Clarifying questions may also be sent to this address.
Selected plays will be announced in April 2013.
We look forward to reading your submissions!
