Short Plays Inspired by
Edward Hopper



The details:

Edward Hopper created brilliant works of art that are full of intrigue and possibility.

We are looking for 3-5 original short plays inspired by Hopper paintings for a production in early 2022.

Submission Requirements:

There is no financial compensation if your play is selected.

Plays must be original works.

The Hopper painting must work into the play in some way.

You may select any Hopper work of your choice, but we will strongly consider some of his "lesser-known" works (as opposed to "Nighthawks" or "Automat").

Your play's content can cover any genre, but should be appropriate for the virtual theatre medium and time period of the artwork.

While many of Hopper's paintings include nudity, it is preferred that is not a part of the play (but may be implied/happen off-stage).

Running time can be as short as 10 minutes or as long as 30 minutes.

Only one play per playwright will be accepted.

Submissions must be made by 11:59PM on August 31st, 2021.
