Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre seeking full-length plays Deadline: ASAP

Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre, an African American Theatre nestled in a thriving artistic and intellectual community in Evanston, Illinois, is seeking full length plays for its 2008 Reading Series of America's most dynamic playwrights under 30. Held every second Saturday of each month, (March 8 - December 12), FJT will feature profound stories from across the nation and partner with the best directors and performers in the area.

The theatre's twofold objective is to expose dynamic, emerging voices and ignite discussion among the community concerning cultural, political, social and philosophical issues across the American landscape.

Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre is committed to exposing and encouraging the development of new writers of color and their works for the 21st Century.

As a professional theatre leader, we hope you can provide recommendations in support of this creative endeavor. Dramatists must be of color and between the ages of 16-29.

Time is sensitive, therefore, we humbly request scripts to be sent immediately as an e-copy or postal to the following addresses:
