The Brimmer Street Theatre Company's fifth annual Blueprint Series is now accepting submissions, with a deadline of Friday, January 11 to submit applications. The Blueprint program provides opportunities for playwrights to work with the BSTC ensemble, in collaboration with other artists, to develop new projects.
The BSTC Blueprint Series focuses on developing work from the ground up. Projects will be selected by the BSTC ensemble based on the concept of a play, including genre, plot, cast, etc. Duration of the development process is ten weeks, at the conclusion of which the company may offer further studio development, a public reading, or even a full production of a play that has been built during the process.
Past Blueprint Series projects have included Leiris/Picasso by David Jette (produced by BSTC in 2010), Flower to Flower by Christina Cigala (produced by BSTC in 2011), 1969 by Damon Chua (produced by GatChu Productions and Rogue Machine Theatre in 2012), and Summer in Hell and All Your Hard Work, both by Miles Brandman (produced by BSTC in 2010 and 2012, respectively).
Brimmer Street Theatre Company is a non-profit Los Angeles-based performance company with a commitment to develop original theatre and welcome artists whose work challenges established forms and expectations. BSTC strives to form a close ensemble with these artists, craftsmen, students, and benefactors to produce work of exceptional innovation and character.
