Interview with the board
We cannot accept every proposal. Only 2* shows will be selected per semester. To those who do not get chosen to direct: do not be discouraged! You can always propose next semester. Our new seasons are announced at the end of the fall semester and during Divas Proper (at the end of the spring semester). If you are not selected to direct a production, then ask about directing a staged-reading of the play. Center Stage would love to host a staged-reading for student playwrights.
Our next season is focusing on plays written by or for women! We are excited to represent under appreciated groups and look forward to bringing their stories to life. Below are some examples of plays about women:
Fefu and Her Friends by Maria Irene Fornes
Queen by Madhuri Shekar
Well Intentioned White People by Rachel Lynett
Machinal by Sophie Treadwell
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche by Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder
