The FIRST FLIGHT New Play Festival is one of the premiere new play development festivals in Indie Theatre. Each play selected to participate in the festival received 6 hours of rehearsal time over the course of one week, culminating in a public reading of the play for a supportive audience.
The upcoming Open Submission Season for the 2017 First Flight Festival closed Saturday October 15th, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST.
The next open window for submission will be in Fall 2017.
Boomerang only accepts electronic submissions. No hard copy submissions will be considered.
Please submit your resume, a synopsis of your play, and a 10 page sample of the play. Note: this does not have to be the first 10 pages; merely the 10 pages that best represent the play and your writing.
1) FIRST FLIGHT develops only new full length plays--comedies or dramas, adaptations or wholly original--that speak to the current cultural and historical moment in time.
2) We are especially interested in theatrical use of language and style.
3) Plays are not limited to cast size, period or setting.
4) We do not accept musicals, nor do we accept one act plays less than 60 minutes.
