Oak CliffTeCo Theatrical Productions, which produces at the lovely Bishop Arts Theater Center in Oak Cliff, will hold its first LGBT New Play Competition in September. This will be much like the group's long-running New Play Competition every February, except that the plays will have gay-themed material. The playwrights do not have to be LGBT.

The idea for the Play Pride LGBT Festival, which will run Sept. 4-14, began when Emma Rodgers was reading play submissions and liked one, but thought it too risque for the New Play Competition, which has a family-friendly bent. That play, Three Guys in a Bed, by Randy Frank Eppes, is already in the festival. TeCo is calling for submissions for five more plays, each with a running time of no more than 20 minutes, and with no more than 4 cast members required. Each playwright selected will pick an LGBT-themed charity, and the winner's charity will receive $1,000.

Each of the plays receives a full production; all six shows are presented at each performance.

"We're in a very diverse community and it's very important that we serve that community," said TeCo artistic director Teresa Coleman Wash at a press conference on Wednesday.

The submissions will be open to Texas playwrights, unlike the New Play Competition, which is only open to Dallas-Fort Worth writers. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2014.

Look for more information about the submission process to be posted on the TeCo website soon. Thanks For Reading
