PICplays weaves live storytelling with a lecture series to inform and inspire audiences. From June through July 2020, we aim to host five online events lasting 45-60 minutes each, featuring three short 10 minute original plays as well as a Q&A by a renowned guest speaker. It is free and open to the public as we seek to promote awareness around these important issues. Register for one or all of the events!
Funding Our Cause
We are also working to raise $10,000 to provide each artist (playwrights, actors, directors) and guest speakers with an honorarium for their services. All donations which exceed our goal will help fund SERIES II: Immigration, Animal Conservation, American Militarism, Domestic Violence, and Contemporary Theology. If you have the means to donate during this difficult time, your donation will be tax deductible as Actors Circle Ensemble is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.
TO SUBMIT AS AN ARTIST:
Playwrights: please submit a 5-10 page sample.
Directors: please submit your portfolio/website and any directorial samples in theatre or film.
If you would like to be considered as a Director or Playwright, please send your request to:
