The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center and Q2Q Theater Company Announces The Return of The Hackensack Theater And Playwright Festival

Q2Q* Theater Company in conjunction with The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center will be holding The Hackensack Theater And Playwright Festival, February 21, through February 25, 2007. We are looking for first time playwrights, playwrights who are working on new pieces or playwrights who are reworking old pieces to submit their work.

Once the plays are chosen the playwright will be contacted and will have approximately two (2) months to rehearse the play. Each play will additionally get at least three (3) to four (4) rehearsals at the festivals venue, The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center. Q2Q Theater Company and The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center will provide lights, sound, minimal sets and props. The festival is intended to be a “bare-bones”, “black box” style of theater, where the text and the characters drive the story. Plays cannot have a running time more than forty-five (45) minutes and have no more than eight (8) characters.

This is the perfect opportunity for a playwright to utilize a 115 seat, State Of The Art Theater and finally see their play go “from the page to the stage.”

Submission Deadline: Friday, November 10, 2006
