The Management Wants Your Plays

Just received this announcement. Attention all playwrights:

The Management is now accepting submissions for our 2009 Salon Series

Along with our fully-staged productions, The Management's next season will include a second run of our highly enjoyable, bi-monthly series of play readings. We're looking for pieces of any length, any genre, that capture the imagination and stir up some trouble. Take a look at our website, peruse the mission statement, and if you have an idea or a script that you think fits with our style, download an application and send it to us by January 15th.

All readings will be held at a Manhattan performance space and we will provide publicity for the events. We'll also provide the rehearsal space, directors, actors, simple sets, and props (authors can make special requests.) We are asking for a sample of the theatrical piece being submitted, but we don't require the piece to be completed as of Jan. 15.

Please reply with any questions and feel free to pass this email along to any friends and colleagues.

THE MANAGEMENT was formed in 2004 as part of New York's UnConvention Festival. Its first production was the Brecht-inspired This Jungle of Cities penned by founding member Berrian Eno-Van Fleet. The Management is known for its dark whimsy and critical exposés on American culture. In 2005 the company enjoyed an 8-month residency at Victory Hall in Jersey City where it produced the East Coast premiere of Naomi Izuka's Aloha Say the Pretty Girls and Thornton Wilder's The Long Christmas Dinner. The Mgmt took part in the inaugural Capital Fringe Festival in Washington D.C. in 2006 with the grotesquely humorous, existential play Self-Obsession in Blue. An original piece, The Chalk Boy, was workshopped as part of chashama's collectivePAST festival last summer and was produced this year in the Capital Fringe Festival and had a very successful bi-coastal (NYC/LA) production this autumn, which marked The Management's first project as Resident Artists with Horse Trade Theater Group. Our next play is Kristin Kosmos' The Scandal! running December 4-20 in The Red Room on E. 4th Street.
