Married and in love, Christine and Mark are eagerly expecting their first child, but the reality of bringing baby home is filled with the unexpected. Problems go deeper than diapers when Mark takes on extra work and Christine escapes the monotony of life-at-home by binge-watching streaming services. Soon, exhaustion, surging hormones, and her anxious mind create a perfect storm, sweeping Christine in and out of the dream worlds of the movies she loves. As her fantasies take over, reality blurs, and nothing is quite as it seems in this exciting portrayal of motherhood and life after birth. 
 
MARK: late 20’s-early 30’s; male; ANY RACE/ETHNICITY; A geeky and caring college professor with a sweet sense of humor. Dedicated to providing for his wife and new child. 
 
FEMALE ACTOR: 30s-40s, female-identifying, ANY RACE/ETHNICITY, multi-track role including: CHARLOTTE (a Jane Austen-style ingenue), HEATHER (an opinionated, fashionable, and fit Yoga instructor with money), RUTH (a strict and experienced lactation consultant)
 

Our season auditions are typically held in May.  We also attend the annual Florida Professional Theatre Association auditions and the annual South Florida Theatre League Unified auditions.

Theatre Lab Play Submission Policy

Theatre Lab regrets it cannot accept open submissions of plays and musicals. Unfortunately, the cost of reading and processing hundreds of scripts is beyond our modest staff capabilities. We only accept play submissions electronically in the following circumstances:

  1. You are a writer who in the past has had a play developed in some phase of a Theatre Lab New Play Development Program.
  2. You are an agent at a recognized literary agency.
  3. You are either a writer who has had a play developed/presented at one of the theatres of the National New Play Network or are an Artistic/Literary head of an NNPN Theatre.
  4. You either work as, or were suggested to submit by, the Artistic Director, Associate Artistic Director, or Literary Manager (or equivalent position) at a Professional Theatre. In the case of a recommendation, a note from that person must accompany the submission, as well as their e-mail address.

For information on obtaining literary and theatrical representation, other theaters interested in new plays and script submission procedures, please consult the excellent publication Dramatists Sourcebook, published by Theatre Communications Group, a service organization for the not-for-profit professional theater, available through your local bookstore, online through vendors such as Amazon.com, or directly from TCG Publications at tcg.org. The Sourcebook is published biannually, so you may want to confirm that policies have not changed since the latest publication date.
