Submissions Now Open For Legacy Project 3

25 Aug 2015

Are you a queer writer with a passion for theatre but not sure how to get your work onto stage? Or are you a director who’s looking for that next exciting script to work on? Then here’s your opportunity. LEGACY PROJECT wants to help tell your stories. LEGACY PROJECT is a theatre development programme created to provide a platform for emerging writers within our LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans) community to create short theatrical works that express our unique Kiwi voices. Following our successful 2015 season as part of Auckland Pride and Auckland Fringe 2015, LEGACY PROJECT returns for our third year. We are looking for emerging or established writers to submit their scripts to be a part of our third year of development. From submissions, six shortlisted scripts will be work-shopped during a development weekend in November before being performed on stage as part of a week-long performance showcase during Auckland Pride Festival 2016. We are also looking for talented directors to assist us with the development these new works need before ultimately casting and staging these exciting new stories. Participation is open to all, regardless of gender or sexuality. Anyone who wishes to write, direct or audition for roles in the project is encouraged to get involved. Writer and director submissions are open until Friday 30th October.
