Heller Theatre Company is looking for a Playwright-in-Residence

Contrary to popular belief, great opportunities don't just rely on sheer luck. New jobs, great business ideas, and the right people–you have to develop habits to attract them at the right place, at the right time..png

Heller Theatre Company, long committed to bringing compelling, provocative, and  engaging original works to Tulsa, is seeking a Playwright-in-Residence for a two-year residency, spanning the 2019/20 and 2020/2021 seasons (July 2019 through June 2021). Applications will be accepted May 1 - May 31.

HTC recognizes that skilled playwrights already reside within Oklahoma and with the  Playwright-in-Residence program, HTC continues to create an environment to uplift and embolden exciting new voices.

We are seeking a playwright who lives within Oklahoma to develop a full-length original play to be produced in our 2020/21 season. The playwright will also teach workshops on playwriting as part of our community outreach programs. As a benefit to the playwright, two play reading opportunities will be offered.  There is a stipend attached to the playwriting residency.

To apply (May 1 - 31) send the following in .DOC or .PDF form to hellertheatre@gmail.com:

  • Submission of a complete work (either full-length, a one-act or two short plays)

  • Submission of a resume highlighting writing/teaching experience

  • Contact information.

After the initial submission period, the field will be narrowed to three candidates by selection of the HTC Board. The final three will be interviewed by a committee of the Board. The selected playwright will be announced by July 1, 2019.
