Small Press Traffic's Poets' Theater Jamboree 2005

This year Small Press Traffic's annual Poets' Theater Jamboree is being curated by the following writers and artists. This is a community event as well as an important fundraiser for us. We would love it if you would like to become involved this year or in a future year. The information on this page is intended to let folks know how to do so.
The Jamboree takes place in January and early February each year.
Please remember if you are interested in participating, that our production resources are limited and that each playwright (and/or his or her curator/producer) is responsible for knowing these limits and for producing their play within them, as well as for being in touch with SPT's director as their production takes shape.
Also, plays are strictly limited to ten minutes. Further, we do not present plays by the same writer in two consecutive years. Finally, while there is glory aplenty, there is no payment for the playwrights or actors. (If our circumstances change, there could be in future.)
As you read about the interests of each curator below, if you find someone you think your work might suit, please contact Small Press Traffic and we will put you in touch. Thanks very much for your interest in our Jamboree.
(Several curator notes are forthcoming; several curators are producing works they've commissioned.)

is interested in reading work grounded in formal structures/strictures/restrictions, wandering somewhere between narrative and anti-narrative, with structure seen as positive potential not an encumbrance. Beckett, Artaud, Jarry and Brecht might be among the possible models/influences for the kind of plays I'd be interested in seeing.

In 2003 I directed a revival of Djuna Barnes' "She Tells Her Daughter" for the Jamboree. (I also directed my own play "La Gnossienne," in which Barnes appears as a character.) This year I may produce a Stein play in addition to a contemporary one. My interests range from plays that really function much like poems (Stein, Scalapino, so on) to ones that use narrative and character more conventionally, but with a definite and compelling idiosyncrasy (Barnes). I will more than likely need to produce a play whose playwright can take on the work of casting, directing, etc.
