Seeking Short Plays

We request that submissions meet the following criteria:
We have some big plans for this year (and beyond!), and we appreciate your support.
From emerging Filipina-American playwright, Lindsey Twigg, comes a story about finding your true allies.
This new comedy explores meeting artistic inspiration with open hands versus the conflict of hanging onto what's rightfully yours.
"Christine is Filipina and loves Jasper The Jazzman Jones.
Jo is Black and she doesn't.
What happens when The Jazzman, a racially ambiguous R&B/pop singer, wins a highly contentious award for making music that Jo considers black and definitely not his to make?

We are so grateful to have had this opportunity to attend the 6th biennial conference and festival hosted by CAATA (Consortium of Asian American Theaters and Artists).
We've made great friends and established a network that extends all across the country (and world!) from our corner in the Southwest. MaArte Theatre Collective is now officially part of the national theatre conversation!
Our Co-Artistic Directors (Christine Nathanson and Ciarlene Coleman) have recently met and mapped out the next twelve months of MaArte's future. Although we can't share everything on our agenda yet, we can list what you can expect to hear about in the upcoming weeks...
We have some big plans throughout the end of 2018 and continuing through summer of next year, so we very much appreciate your support. You can keep up with us on a day-to-day basis by following us on social media!
Maarte Theatre Collective is here in Chicago! We are excited to meet and connect with our fellow Asian American theatre artists.
