Looking for new GLBTQ plays

Lavender_footlights Gearing up for the seventh annual Lavender Footlights Festival, artistic director Ryan Capiro is starting his play search.  The festival, which will happen Feb. 28-March 2, 2009, is looking for scripts with gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer themes -- particularly plays that deal with diversity, Latino/Caribbean themes, unusual or controversial issues.

Playwrights can submit up to three scripts (none returned).  Send a cover letter with return address, contact information and a statement that the play hasn't been produced in Florida, a copy of the script and, for full-length plays, a one-page synopsis.  Send the information to Capiro via email or snail mail everything to Living Arts Trust, Attn: Ryan Capiro, P.O. Box 942107, Miami, FL 33194-2107.

Deadline is midnight Dec. 1, and playwrights will find out whether their work has been selected via email on Jan. 15.  For more information, visit the Lavender Footlights web site.
