We are looking for scripts for The Sochi Project

Out athlete Blake SkjellerupPride Films and Plays is seeking material for The Sochi Project – readings staged in Chicago just before and after the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, in February. We are seeking both one-act and full-length plays, as well as screenplays, or performance pieces that could be performed in PFP’s enhanced staged reading style. The project will benefit the National Gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame and Pride Films and Plays.

Texts can be specific to the impending situation for gay athletes in Russia, or about gays in sports in general.

If interested, please send scripts to prideplay@gmail.com with Sochi in the subject line. Please submit by December 22nd. And feel free to post or pass this on to others who may be interested.

If you know of plays that are published that we should be considering (in addition to Take Me Out which seems to be THE play everyone knows when you ask them about plays about gays and sports), send an email with that information to the same address.
