LOS ANGELES—Native Voices seeks short plays that address the many ways a Native American family forms and functions. Plays may be a celebration of family life or an examination of complexities and issues in Native families. Alternately, plays may dramatize traditional family stories or family histories.
Short plays that are related to the family theme will be evaluated by a reading panel of nationally recognized theatre artists and community members. Selected plays will be presented as staged readings on November 8, 2015, as part of the Autry’s annual American Indian Arts Marketplace. A panel of celebrity judges will select the 2015 Von Marie Atchley Award for Excellence in Playwriting, a $1,000 cash prize.
Native Voices at the Autry is the only Equity theatre company devoted exclusively to developing and producing new works for the stage by Native American, Alaska Native, and First Nations playwrights.
