Call for submissions!

TRU SEEKS SHORT PLAYS FOR OUR ANNUAL GALA - TRU is planning a second edition of our TRUSPEAK Benefit, for 2022. This will be a virtual gala featuring honorees plus short plays, each hosted by a former TRU honoree.

TRU is currently seeking scripts – plays as well as musicals – that deal with current social issues. BLM, gay rights, women's rights – whatever is important to you. Your show should run no more than 12 minutes and be suitable for virtual presentation. We will find you a director, producer and technologist. All plays will be recorded and edited to use the medium to best advantage. We encourage submissions from writers of color, and are open to submissions by all writers.

We are looking for whatever inspires you to create a meaningful monolog or small-cast play or musical that touches on a topic of social concern that is personally meaningful. Please send submissions and any inquiries to TRUPlaySubmissions@gmail.comopen submissions, deadline 11/15. Benefit is tentatively planned for February.
