Healing Voices: Caregivers' Stories On Stage is a partnership between New Jersey Theatre Alliance, George Street Playhouse, McCarter Theatre Center, Premiere Stages, and Two River Theater Company. Selected Caregiver Stories will be woven together as part of an original professional theatre experience about the caregiver experience. The project will culminate with three presentations of selected works read by professional actors as part of New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival in different venues across the state.

This program is open to both professional caregivers and family caregivers. Short works of prose, poetry, and theatre will be considered. All entries must be original works and must not have previously been published. All pieces should reflect the theme of caregiving. Pieces that explore the personal healing experience will also be considered.

All writers have the opportunity to attend a workshop to further develop their piece. We anticipate that writers will attend the workshop at the same venue where they want their piece performed. If your schedule makes it so that you are unable to attend a workshop and performance at the same location, special arrangements may be made on a case by case basis.

Submissions are being accepted through January 15, 2020.
