Who Wants Cake? seeks submissions for GPS


FERNDALE -

Who Wants Cake? is sounding a call for new, original one-act plays to be performed at its third annual Gay Play Series. The Detroit-area's only LGBT short play festival is striving to provide early-career writers the opportunity to see their work produced, giving them what is oft-needed exposure.

Last year's expanded festival proved to be wildly successful, with Jason Sebacher's play, "A Few Survivors," winning the top prize. The 2011 Festival also saw more prizes handed out, with Christa Coulter winning the Audience Award for Favorite Performance and Matthew Turner Shelton winning the Audience Award for Best Director, both for Rich Orloff's play "Vowed and Wowed." Artistic Director Joe Bailey says, "The GPS Festivals have continually exceeded our expectations and we have no doubt that the third annual one will be no different. We are incredibly excited to get to planning the 2012 festivities."

The plays submitted should have a performance time of 30 minutes or less and deal directly with issues or characters that are identified as gay/lesbian/transgender, or contain a gay sensibility. From the initial submission pool, a final line up will be chosen by a panel of judges to be performed at The Ringwald Theatre in June 2012. From those performed, an audience poll will be conducted to select one script that will receive a full production at The Ringwald Theatre during the 2012/2013 season.

All submissions must be submitted electronically to: Submissions@WhoWantsCakeTheatre.com

Other submission guidelines are as follows: (1) The submitted script must be the script proposed for presentation, with no major alterations necessary; (2) Please provide an approximate running time and a one sentence synopsis in the body of the e-mail; (3) Neither fax nor paper submissions will be accepted; (4) Submission materials will not be returned; (5) The deadline for submissions is Feb. 16, 2012.

The final line-up will be announced in May 2012.
