Calling All Playwrights

2 Pages/2 Voices

Each year Writers & Books and Geva Theatre Center collaborate to present 2 Pages/2 Voices, an evening of short short plays written by area writers and read by area actors. Each play must be no more than two pages in length and contain no more than two characters. The only other stipulation for this year’s submissions is that at some point in the play the word “spin” must be included, in honor of The Age of Miracles. Submissions can be hand-delivered or mailed to Writers & Books, 740 University Ave., Rochester, NY 14607.

Deadline for submissions: 1/5/15
Public announcement of winners on website: 1/16/15
Performance date: 1/26/15


Regional Playwrights

Writers & Books and Geva Theatre Center are once again collaborating to give regional playwrights  the opportunity to bring their works to local audiences. Both full-length and one-act plays written by regional playwrights (living now or having lived within the five county-area: Monroe, Livingston, Wayne, Ontario, and Genesee), selected through an open competitive  process, will be given developmental readings by professional actors at Geva on the evenings of April 27 and May 4, 2015. The purpose of the festival is to give promising regional writers a chance to hear their work aloud, and thereby gain information they need to rewrite and to take the script to another level of development.

Plays for consideration must be submitted (post-marked or hand-delivered) between 1/20/15 – 2/3/15 to Writers & Books, 740 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607.
