PFP Seeks UNLEASHED Scripts

Pork Filled Productions is calling for submissions for our new play reading festival Unleashed: New Pulp Stories for the 21st Century. The festival runs October 30, 2017 through November 4, 2017 at Theatre Off Jackson in Seattle, WA. 

If you have a play (or are writing one) that tells a thrilling, larger-than-life tale, that uses recognizable genre tropes in inventive new ways, Pork Filled Productions might produce it. The goal of Unleashed: New Pulp Stories of the 21st Century is to give playwrights of color the opportunity to let loose their imaginations. We want to unleash stories that will make our audiences lean forward in their seats in anticipation, or send shivers up their spines in terror, or make their pulses pound with excitement. ​We want to make some fun theater! 

Plays are not required to have specifically diverse casts or racial themes; however, Pork Filled Productions is dedicated to casting all of our shows with at least 51% actors of color, so please keep that in mind when considering your submissions.
 
​Below is a brief list of key information followed by submission guidelines. If you ​have any questions, please email info@porkfilled.com. We are very excited to read your play! Thank you!
 
​Sincerely,
The Pork Filled Productions Producers!
