Calling all Pittsburgh storytellers! (Or Pittsburghers who just happen to have a story to tell.) 12 Peers is currently seeking Pittsburgh myths to incorporate in our upcoming Mythburgh programming, a series of short plays presented throughout the year in various locations around Pittsburgh. If you have any creepy, epic, or truly Pittsburgh stories that deserve "mythic" status, send them to us. Some examples include ghost stories, UFO sightings, folk heroes--anything larger than life that could be considered the stuff of Pittsburgh legend. These stories can be in any form, too--a short story, a folk ballad, an epic poem, a hip-hop cypher. Our team of Mythburgh playwrights will take this material and craft new plays from your tall tales. We believe a fascinating city like Pittsburgh should have its story told by the many different voices and communities that are a part of it. So if you're a current or former Pittsburgh resident, tell us the story of this city. We can't do it without you. All Pittsburgh stories should be sent to Matt Henderson, Literary Manager, at [email protected] by November 5, 2016.
There are no auditions scheduled at this time.
