2010-2011 Huntington Playwriting Fellows: Apply TODAY!

We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2010-2011 Huntington Playwriting Fellows. The deadline is June 23, 2010. 

“But wait!” you exclaim. “Didn’t you just do this last fall? It hasn’t even been a year!” 

Well, dear Playwright, you're right! When the HPF program was started, the playwrights’ tenures were intended to coincide with the theatre season. Over the years, we got a bit off track and it shifted to calendar year. Charles Haugland and I realized that we needed to return to the season-to-season cycle putting the bulk of the reading into the summer months when things slow down here a bit. So the time to apply is NOW. 

You can find all the information you need here.

There are a few important changes to note: 

  • You may submit either a full-length play or a one-act 
  • If you have submitted a play to us since May 1, 2009 there is no need to send an additional play. 
  • Please send us everything via email, and most importantly, 
  • You may not resubmit work that was previously considered by the Huntington, this includes 2009 HPF application scripts. 

We are more interested in learning about your voice or sensibility than reading polished scripts, so we encourage you to send whatever you are currently working on, even if you do not consider it completely “finished.” 

We had a great time reading the applications last year and we’re really looking forward to what you all have got for us now.

  1. I've always been frtsurated by the fact that the Huntington's "Breaking Ground" series of play readings has been scheduled in the past in March, one of the busiest months on the performance calendar, so that people like me who attend lots of events found it difficult to schedule many of the readings due to conflicts. So imagine how excited I was when this year's series was announced for Summer dates - perfect, I thought!Alas, no - one reading on a weekday afternoon(!), and others on weeknights at 7 - too early for me. Who ever heard of a 7 p.m. curtain? What about weekends? Or at least 7:30 or 8 p.m. starts? It's starting to seem like a plot to keep me away...[sigh]
  2. Well since you ask:1. I want to know why some Chiro's still claim that subluxations are the cause of most miacedl problems. 2. I want to know why some Chiro's think they are on the same par as miacedl Doctors when they have no training in proper diagnosis, which may result in a delay in patients being referred to a real doctor.3. I want to know why some chiropractors claim they can treat illnesses and diseases in which they have no business treating, much less received training in. E.g. Asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer. 4. I want to know why Chiro's resort to logical fallacies instead of providing evidence when challenged.Edit:So, let me get this straight, the newbie, flora, is going to drive over to Yahoo HQ and rat on us? LOLEdit: Go flora!
