Playwrights take note Brimmer Street 2014 Breaking Ground accepting submissions

See also

Breaking Ground, Brimmer Street Theatre Company’s (BSTC) play development program, is now accepting submissions for 2014. Breaking Ground is an opportunity for playwrights to work with BSTC’s ensemble and other artists to finalize a fully-drafted script-in-progress through a collaborative rehearsal process culminating in a workshop performance. The application deadline is Wednesday, February 5 at midnight.

Breaking Ground is a play development program aimed to move nearly-completed scripts to a final draft through the collaboration and discovery provided by a rehearsal process. Writers interested in polishing a script using an ensemble-driven, collaborative process are encouraged to visit to complete an application and submit the current draft of their script. Projects will be selected by the BSTC ensemble based on the play’s potential fit for the company. Selected playwrights will receive a small stipend.

The Breaking Ground program is a follow-up initiative to BSTC’s five-years-strong Blueprint Series, through which playwrights advance an idea for a play from a brainstorm to a first draft script. The goal of Breaking Ground is to advance a rough draft to a final script that is ready for possible production. Both programs are funded in part by a grant from the LA County Arts Commission.

Brimmer Street Theatre Company is a non-profit ensemble theatre that creates and produces new works of theatre in order to cultivate artists and engage audiences in Los Angeles. By working from a select core of talented artists, BSTC aims to produce a unique brand of American theatre that is rooted in a common experience and driven by their commitment to building better theatre that is challenging, extraordinary, and inspiring.
