Call for Plays (Deadline 9/1)


New writers. New actors. New directors. New audiences. You up for this? 2009 marks the start of Lost Beat Generation, a theatre and performance alternative stemming from Fort Worth's thirteen-year-old SceneShop. Like its older sibling, LBG will focus on original material and minimalist staging, but that may be where the similarity ends. Led by SceneShop's Technical Director, University of Texas at Arlington theatre senior Nicholas Irion, LBG will initiate its efforts by reaching out to new writers.

"For us, it has always begun with the words," says SceneShop co-founder and Artistic Director Steven McGaw, "and I think this new venture can really make contact with a younger and untapped community of playwrights. Where Nick and his peers take it from there is up to them."

THE SKINNY: Lost Beat Generation, a project of Fort Worth's 13-year-old SceneShop, is looking for new and provocative unpublished works that will offer audiences challenges as regards politics, sexuality and most importantly, unconventional thinking.

LBG is aiming to perform at various venues, festivals, etc., so variety is important. In general, submitted works will need to require no more than four characters, minimal staging and run no longer than thirty minutes- but scripts in the 10 to 15-minute range are welcome and encouraged.

LBG wants to work with and encourage new playwrights and asks, in return, that writers approach submitting pieces to us with openness and flexibility. In fact, all of the above guidelines are flexible..INCLUDING TIME.. LENGTH.. ETC; let us see what you've got to say! Please contact us with scripts, thoughts, questions or recipes at LostBeatGeneration@gmail.com
