Shakespeare in Paradise - Short Tales 2019 Needs Directors!

Anthony "Skeebo" Roberts at work on A Disconnected Heart, Ringplay Productions, May 2018

Why we need your talent, enthusiasm, and commitment:

Because Shakespeare in Paradise 2018's Short Tales was such a success last year, we're doing it again. We want to feature the work of different writers, and we also want to give budding directors experience in working with scripts that are not their own.
As we move to put together our series of 10 short plays by different playwrights, we also need to find directors for these works.

Each director may be assigned up to two of the scripts. Apply now—don't be shy!

How to apply

Are you a director? Send us your CV!

Are you a wannabe director? Let us know what you've done on stage OR screen!
We'll meet with writers and directors at the beginning of June, so that we can make final tweaks to the scripts and assign them to their directors. We'll workshop the scripts as needed in June. Auditions are in mid-July. Rehearsals start at the end of July. Short Tales 2019 opens on September 30.
