Request for Submissions: Women & Science Ten-Minute Plays

Submit completed applications to: on or before Friday, February 5, 2021

Building on the annual Brit d’Arbeloff Women In Science Production, Underground Railway and The Nora at Central Square Theater have long envisioned a Festival bringing together scientists, theater artists and creative thinkers from around the country. Our work with Catalyst Collaborative@MIT, a collaboration between Central Square Theater and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is the nation’s only on-going partnership between a professional theater company and a world-class research institution. Each season, URT or The Nora produces plays that open the door between art and science and push us to expand our visions of the future, framed by real-time encounters with scientists who are changing our world.

Slated for April, 2021 the Women & Science Festival (“W&S”) will take place virtually with panels and performances, centering underrepresented voices. To amplify our commissioning arm, we are seeking 10-minute plays centering women and female-identifying writers and stories. We welcome bold ideas and innovative forms of performance within these plays, created for a Zoom platform.
