an evening of awareness
Call for submissions!

TRU SEEKS SHORT PLAYS FOR OUR ANNUAL GALA - TRU is planning a third edition of our TRUSPEAK Benefit, for 2023. This will be a virtual gala featuring short plays, each hosted by a former TRU honoree or celebrity,

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. We are particularly interested in plays that explore issues of Equity/Diversity/Inclusion. So much has happened in the last year and we hope you have written about it. Your show should run no more than 10 minutes and be suitable for virtual presentation, though tech experts and editors can work wonders in this filmed medium. And we will help 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 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 12/31/22. Benefit is tentatively planned for April.
