Welcome to 2Cents Theatre's annual 3-day festival of female playwrights!
2Cents is NOW accepting submissions for our 7th annual Acting Out INK Fest!
...a RAW and CHALLENGING Festival of One-Act Plays featuring works by the LADIES!
We will once again be joined by around 100 artists for this exciting event, from playwrights to directors to actors and street artists,
to celebrate the FEMALE PLAYWRIGHT and ART! The Fest will take place March 27-29 2020 at The Broadwater Theaters in Hollywood,
right in the heart of Theatre Row and the Los Angeles 99-seat community. We will also be continuing our
Best of INK @Fringe series, featuring 1-3 INK Fest plays to be selected for production at the Hollywood Fringe Festival!
This means, we will select either 1 feature or 2-3 shorts to further produce at the 2020 Hollywood Fringe in June.
We are looking for ART that crosses lines, leaps bounds, and inspires artists and audiences to explore uncharted territory.
With each new Fest we introduce a new INK tagline based on a literary quote. Please think outside the box, between the lines, whatever...
wow us with the ways in which this can be incorporated! Keep in mind our goal is to produce a group of plays that present a variety of themes and stories.
Don't feel the need to take this literary quote too literally, it can be interpreted in a vast number of ways.
This year, the INK tagline is a quote by NK Jemisin:
"There is nothing foolish about hope."
