Submissions now open for LEGACY PROJECT 4

6 Sep 2016

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 share your stories on stage. LEGACY PROJECT is a theatre development programme established 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 and experiences. We are looking for emerging or established writers to submit their scripts to be part of our fourth year of development. From these open submissions, six shortlisted scripts will be workshopped during a development weekend in mid-November before being staged as part of a week-long performance showcase during Auckland Pride Festival 2017. We are also looking for inspiring directors to assist us in developing these new works before ultimately casting and staging these bite-sized stories. Participation is open to all, regardless of gender or sexuality. Anyone who wishes to write, direct or audition is encouraged to get involved with the project. Writer and director submissions are open until Friday 28th October. For detailed submission criteria and more information about the project, check out our website legacyproject.co.nz We want to continue sharing these stories, to examine the lives that have come before us, in order to better understand how our shared narratives define ourselves, each other and our place within the wider community.
