Burien Actors Theatre is seeking submissions of new plays by Washington State playwrights for the 2017 Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival. Both one-act and full-length plays are sought.

Winning scripts staged April 14 through May 7, 2017 as part of Burien Actors Theatre’s 2016-17 season. In addition to having their plays produced, winning playwrights receive monetary prizes.

Submission deadline for all scripts is Oct. 21, 2016. To qualify for the Festival, all submissions must follow Playwrights Submission Guidelines detailed below. The guidelines can also be found at

Playwrights Submission Guidelines

  • Open to any person residing in the State of Washington.
    There are no submission fees.
    Scripts may either be one-act or full-length. A series of unrelated or loosely related acts or scenes that could more properly be separated into one-act plays will not be accepted as a full-length play and may be treated as separate one-acts for purposes of this Festival.
    Submissions must be original and unpublished. Plays that have never been produced or have only had a workshop or a reading, whether staged or otherwise, are eligible. However, plays that have been fully produced are not eligible.
    The Festival provides a semi-workshop environment and basic production, so excessive production requirements may result in disqualification.
    All submissions must be typed/word-processed, page-numbered, and in standard professional play format. Format guidelines can be obtained at via the “Samuel French Formatting Guide” link or going to
    Manuscripts must begin with a cover page that includes the following so we have important information about you and your script, including how to contact you: Name of play, your name, email address, U.S. mail address and phone number, as well as the number of script pages, number of acts and type of play (comedy, drama, etc.). The cover page will be removed from your manuscript to ensure blind judging.
    Manuscripts must also include the play’s title on a separate page from the cover page (since the cover page will be removed), 2-3 sentence synopsis, character list (including gender, age range and features such as skin or hair color necessary to script), setting (time and place), and list of acts and scenes.
    Scripts may be submitted via either email or U.S. mail. Emailed scripts must be in either PDF or Microsoft Word format and sent to Scripts sent via U.S. mail should go to:  Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival, Burien Actors Theatre, P.O. Box 48121, Burien, WA 98148.

    Copyright remains with the playwright.
    Legal clearance of materials not in the public domain is the playwrights’ full responsibility.
    Burien Actors Theatre reserves the right to reject any manuscript for any reason.
    Playwrights are asked but not required to participate in discussions with the audience following performances.
    Entries must be emailed or postmarked by Oct. 21, 2016.
    Winners will be announced January 2, 2017. Winning scripts will be staged April 14 through May 7, 2017, and winning playwrights will each receive a small monetary prize.

About the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival

The mission of the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival is to encourage, promote and showcase previously unproduced theater works written by Washington state residents.

The festival was named to honor Bill and Peggy Hunt’s dedicated services to theater and to Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) over 35 years and their role in founding BAT's Playwrights Festival.

Originally from Canada, the Hunts were familiar with Canadian play competitions and were instrumental in igniting this idea locally. The first staged competitions were theatrical, aimed more at fostering play production rather than writing, with entries from the greater Seattle area.

Later, Peggy Hunt suggested establishing a playwriting competition with winning shows to be produced by Burien Actors Theatre. The company has been producing this unique festival every two to three years since 1999.

About Burien Actors Theatre

Exciting live theater has been a tradition in Burien since 1955. Incorporated in 1980, Burien Actors Theatre has been a leading producer of quality live theater serving residents of the Seattle and south Puget Sound areas.

BAT gives audiences an intriguing and invigorating theater experience with unusual and fantastical productions they can’t see on film or see anywhere else. The company’s mission is to treat audiences to productions of the highest artistic integrity that excite, engage and involve both the local and expanding theatrical communities in the Puget Sound region.

BAT is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) entity and operates on revenue from ticket sales, donations, grants and sponsorships.

Theatre Battery is inviting Puget Sound theatre professionals to see HOODED OR BEING BLACK FOR DUMMIES during preview performances on Thursday, August 25th and Friday, August 26th at 8pm. Playwright Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm will be in residency from DC and would love to meet local artists and representatives from other theatre companies in our region. Tearrance is a current resident at the Kennedy Center and will be attending Juilliard this fall, so this is a great opportunity to attract him to the Puget Sound scene as he emerges into national view.

To reserve complimentary seats for either preview, visit OR (in the event that all online tickets are reserved) email us at

Plot Summary:
Marquis and Tru are both fourteen-year-old black boys, but they exist in two totally different worlds. Marquis is a republican prep-schooler living in the affluent white suburb of Achievement Heights, while Tru is a street savvy rap artist from deep within the inner city of Baltimore. Their paths cross one day in a holding cell, where Tru decides that Marquis has lost his “blackness.” As professor and reluctant student, they confront ignorance and traverse the gap between 2pac and Nietzsche.

Featuring: Kathryn Bogley, Andre Brown, Richard Sean Glen, Caitlin Macy-Beckwith, Mic Montgomery, Jason Sharp, Anthony Lee Simmons, Miriam BC Tobin

Creative Team: Logan Ellis, Regina Victoria Fields, Charles Hawkins, Armand Hopkins, Scott Keva James, Kait Mahoney, Lindsey Morck, Amber Parker, Nicholas Ponting, Tiana Ross, Kathryn Stewart

HOODED is presented with Radical Hospitality ticketing, meaning that no one will be charged to attend a performance. A concept championed by the Mixed Blood in Minneapolis, Radical Hospitality aims to make professional theatre accessible to all members of a community. Support from The Biller Family Foundation, Kent Station, 4culture, and individual donors has made this initiative possible for Theatre Battery.

I am seeking a roommate or roommates as soon as possible for up to a year, maybe longer. I figured it would be much more fun and comfortable to live with other theatre artists, if possible.

I am easy-going, clean, and responsible. I am an actor, but currently employed full-time in security while also going to school full time.

Able to spend $800/month in rent, but hopefully less.

Any questions or details you'd like to know, please ask!
