Utilizing stories with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender characters or themes, Pride Films and Plays develops powerful theatrics that speak for the community and are essential viewing for all audiences.
Pride Films and Plays fosters excellence in writing for the stage and screen by connecting our Writers Network with our Artistic Ensemble and accelerating the process of moving important scripts from development to full production. When ready, these excellent works are then offered to theaters across the country.
Our season consists of three full productions – a world premiere, a Chicago premiere, and a reinvigorated classic – along with three weekend festivals of new ‘enhanced staged readings.’
Writers are invited to join our Writers Network when they are named a finalist in our contests – the Great Gay Play Contest, Women’s Work (for plays and screenplays with lesbian characters or themes, written by women), and the Great Gay Screenplay Contest. The finalists earn cash prizes, and their plays performed as “enhanced staged readings” which include movement, blocking, and technical elements in the 150 Hoover-Leppen Theater in Center on Halsted.
