Heller Theatre Company’s dedication to fostering local playwrights takes us to our most daring and unique project yet. “Second Sunday Serials” allows playwrights to create new works one bite at a time over the course of the season, with audiences watching and deciding what to devour more of each month. Join us in developing episodic theatre that offers continuing sagas, new introductions, and a Choose-Your-Own-Story twist.
Second Sundays will have 5 short pieces competing for bragging rights and royalties. With only 3 audience favorites moving forward to the next installment, plays that don’t move on will be replaced by new pieces alongside the returning stories. While there is a serialized nature to the plays, each returning piece is a self-contained scene and short recaps will be provided to the audience to keep you in the know. What happens next? Find out on Second Sundays!
For consideration in each month’s event, plays must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 1st of that month. There is no submission fee and playwrights may submit up to two scripts each month, though only one can be performed per month. The three playwrights who move on to the following month will receive royalties.
Beginning November 12th, monthly performances will be held on the Second Sunday of Nov., Dec., Jan., Feb., March and May at 7:30PM at Agora Event Center, 1402 S Peoria, #200. Ticket admission fee is only $5 per person, per month, and tickets are available at the door. Cereal snacks and alcohol will be available.
These plays may contain mature content and adult language. This production is made possible through the generosity of the George Kaiser Family Foundation. Heller Theatre Company is a member of Arts Alliance Tulsa. For more information, visit www.hellertheatreco.com or check out Heller Theatre Company on Facebook and Twitter.
