SWAN Day Los Angeles 2019: Send Us Your Plays!

Be part of LAFPI’s SWAN Day Los Angeles: A Festival of Women Playwrights & Directors on Saturday, March 23rd hosted by A Noise Within in Pasadena.

Presented by LAFPI and A Noise Within with the participation of actors and directors from local theater companies, the day will include readings of short plays and Micro-Reads, plus time to eat, drink and connect with female artists for future collaborations – the perfect way to Support Women Artists NOW!

Submission Deadline: Friday, February 22nd

Submission Guidelines:

  • Plays must be by LA-area female-identifying playwrights. (You do not have to be a member of LAFPI or currently live in LA. However, you must be able to attend the event and actively participate in the process.)
  • We’re looking for 5-6 unproduced, unpublished short plays 10 minutes or less. (Plays may have been presented in readings, but brand new is great!)
  • Please send plays with no more than 5 characters (unless they all can be played by 5 actors).
  • Only 1 play per playwright, please.

Plays will be read and evaluated by A Noise Within artists. Selected plays will be paired with a female-identifying director, cast with professional actors and presented in a rehearsed reading.

Final deadline for all submissions is Friday, February 22nd  – early submissions are strongly encouraged!

To submit, send an email to lafpi.updates@gmail.com with the subject line SWAN Day Los Angeles + your name. 

Include a short bio in your email and ensure the following is included in your play, attached as a PDF file named Play Title + your name:

  • TITLE PAGE with your name and contact info
  • SHORT SYNOPSIS
  • CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS and any casting considerations

Don’t have material to submit? Don’t worry. Plan on bringing one page to the festival and we’ll feature it in a special version of our Micro-Reads.

Questions? Contact lafpi.updates@gmail.com.

We look forward to reading your work!
