Job Details


In this time for change, Abingdon Theatre Company is recommitting to creating opportunities for all voices to be heard. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce our Fall Festival of Short Plays! This will be a 2-week virtual festival shedding light on stories by people of color.

We will be taking submissions later in the summer and our diverse panel of judges, theatre professionals who are BIPOC, will select 6 pieces created, and to be performed and directed by people of color. Through the outreach, online readings and finally the staged reading of the winning piece, we hope to engage around 1500 people of color and create a more diverse environment at Abingdon. With that being said, we are looking for BIPOC Emerging directors to direct the 6 selected pieces.

To be considered to participate in our Virtual Festival of Short Plays please submit the following to bcavalieri@abingdontheatre.org:
· 1 copy of your resume (specifically in relation to directing experience)

· Headshot

· A letter of introduction and contact information.

If selected you will be contacted via email to schedule a phone/zoom interview. Please submit ASAP.
