CALL FOR SCRIPTS: The newly reorganized Fourth Unity, under the artistic directorship of Ivan Davila, Jason Ascher, and Moe Bertran, is seeking scripts for their New Playwrights Series. This series presents mostly staged productions of short plays (15-20 minutes) by new playwrights. Approximately two dozen plays will be produced each year and will be performed by The Fourth Unity acting company for an audience comprised primarily of industry professionals. There is an immediate and ongoing need for new scripts. Any length play will be considered. However, short plays and one-acts are primarily selected for production. Royalties will not be paid. Where possible, the playwrights are invited to participate in the production process. Respond to:
The Fourth Unity
