Chicago's Raven Theatre Wants New "Family" Plays

The Raven Theatre, located at 6157 North Clark Street in Chicago, has announced that it is now accepting submissions for its 2013 New Play Workshop. For 2013, they're looking for plays that involve some examination and exploration of "the American family."

You can see details at the bottom of this page, but the basic idea is that the theater wants a 10-page writing sample taken from your American family play, along with a synopsis and breakdown of the characters. Based on that proposal, Raven may ask for the whole script, and from that pool (the one that includes all the complete plays they asked for), they will choose a winner, which will receive a full production (with three performances) in August 2013.

Remember: Plays must address the American family in a significant way.

As with most new play contests, they're looking for NEW, unproduced work. You are asked to send your proposal, including contact information, to Susan Lieberman by email addressed to susan@raventheatre.com on or before November 1, 2012. If you need more info or you have questions, that same email address is where to go.

I saw the notice about this contest posted at the League of Chicago Theatres blog, which is always a useful source of info.
