sparky productions presents


June 9 – 16 2008

Located in the beautiful, historic town of Telluride, Colorado.   The

Telluride Playwright’s Festival offers a unique opportunity for the

playwright, to work on his or her play with professional actors and

directors, in a small intimate setting, far from a critical glare of a large

city.   This is a week long, intensive Festival, culminating in a staged

reading open to the public; where the playwright can receive objective

feedback.   Participants must be available for the entire length of the

Festival and are expected to fully participate, rewrite and work in a

communal, supportive atmosphere.   The goal is to be able to take your play

to the next level. Maximum number of playwrights will be four.    We are

looking for full length plays that say something meaningful and that pertain

to the times we live in. Either drama or comedy.   You must be flexible and

open to working with actors and directors in an informal atmosphere.   Since

we are 9000 feet above sea level in the Rocky Mountains, you must also be

able to accommodate the high altitude.

Airfare, lodging & a communal nightly meal will be included for participants.
