Three Wise Monkeys Looks Ahead
You might have noticed that the Bay One Acts Festival (BOA) has taken a break. It would have been the thirteenth year of the festival, and we’ve taken some time away from the collaboration and fun to reposition BOA and Three Wise Monkeys Theatre for a brand new theatrical journey.
BOA worked with 13 local producing partner theater companies to produce 13 short plays by local playwrights back in 2013. The festival has a long legacy of artists who have been involved, and we have missed telling new stories, creating community, and celebrating the short play form with you.
We hope you’ll join us for the next incarnation of Three Wise Monkeys and the Bay One Acts Festival. Check back here and please visit us on Facebook for updates.
Thank you to all of the Bay Area playwrights who submitted to the Bay One Acts Festival. The submission window for BOA has now closed. If you submitted a script, but did not receive a script submission confirmation email, then please email email@example.com .
Stay tuned for BIG BOA news!
In honor of tax day, we are giving you an EXTENSION!
We are now accepting script submissions through MAY 15th.
Don’t stress Bay Area playwrights. You still have time to submit your one act play to be considered for the 2014 Bay One Acts Festival. So keep those ideas coming! Don’t miss this opportunity to have your voice, your story, your ideas, and your inspiration be a part of this annual celebration of the Bay Area theater community and the short play form. We will also be in touch with all of our playwrights who have already submitted their scripts with confirmation information soon. Click HERE for our BOA 2014 Script Submission Guidelines.
