Identity Theater Company
Nicholas Linnehan, coord.

Production Description

Seeking new plays for a reading series. Producer states: “Identity Theater, (where individuality comes to PLAY), is an innovative ground-breaking company dedicated to exploring the complexities of the human condition. We are looking for original works that focus on characters who undergo a self-discovery. We especially want to work with artists, playwrights and directors who are differently-abled in any way looking to discover the ability in disability. By eliminating the borders between the disabled and able-bodied world, we endeavor to create new perceptions and open people's minds and hearts to our cause. The guidelines for the reading are loose as to allow the playwright the opportunity to determine the best use of their time in the series. It can be as simple or as complicated as the playwright thinks is the most useful for them in their developmental process.”

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Reading series runs June 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 & 17 at an NYC theater (under 99 seats).

Compensation & Union Contract Details

If selected, the playwright will be asked to provide a $40 fee to reserve their spot. This fee can be refunded by the number of tickets they sell for their show. Identity will offer a 70/30 split with the playwright for everyone they bring. Tickets will be sold at $10.
