The Austin Latino New Play Festival brings together playwrights and audience members
together for staged readings and rich conversation about three new scripts, each running just one night.
After each reading, the playwright, director and actors participate in moderated talkback sessions with the audience. Attendees are able here, to provide feedback to the playwrights.

The focus for the 2013 ALNPF is on Texas/Tejano playwrights. ALNPF focused on Austin playwrights in 2011 and in 2012 on a national call for scripts.

What is the process for Austin Latino New Play Festival (ALNPF)? How do I submit a script?

The ALNPF provides an opportunity for Texas playwrights to hear, see, and receive feedback on their original works. The festival format brings together the playwright to work with a dramaturg, director, and actors to bring their play to life as a staged reading in front of an audience. The rehearsal process for each staged reading is approximately 1 1/2 weeks long.

Guidelines for ALPNF scripts:

*The script is a work by a Latino(a) playwright or focused on the lives of Latino(a)s.

* Scripts already produced or scripts scheduled for full production before August 2013, do not qualify as a script in development.

*The script is an original work.

*The script utilizes both the English and Spanish language.

Playwrights selected will...

*be available and willing to collaborate with the dramaturg and the director that are selected to work with your play.

*be available to participate in the development process via email, Skype or in person.

*be available on to attend the reading of their play, and participate in a facilitated talk back with the audience immediately after the reading. We encourage playwrights to attend all three readings of the festival, if possible.

This year's ALNPF will playwrights selected will be invited to share their work with with local writers and community members in a 60- to 90-minute workshop/dialogue the afternoon of their reading.
