We Are Mojoaa


 
 

We believe that the African American community has rich stories that deserve to be told. We believe the voices telling the stories deserve to be heard. And we believe that together we can transport our stories from our communities to platforms that showcase them as the art we've always known them to be.

Some of the most well known Bible characters such as Mary Magdalene, Peter and Mary, Mother of Jesus, take the witness stand to testify. A story told with song and dance, this is the perfect play for the Easter season.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS


MOJOAA Performing Arts Company invites Black playwrights/playwrights of the African diaspora that are writing primarily in English to submit short plays, monologues, one acts and full length plays. We are not accepting musicals at this time.

Shorts and monologues will be considered for our monthly staged reading film series. Every month from September to June we will release a filmed staged reading of a short play or monologue (10 pages or less). Audio of post reading discussion among cast can be made available to the playwright.

One act and full length plays will be considered for full production in our season. Playwrights will be compensated if their work is chosen for full production and can be in communication with the cast and director throughout the process. 

Playwrights retain full rights of their piece throughout the process. MOJOAA Performing Arts Company will not produce work without the express permission of the playwright. We will not share submitted works without the permission of the playwright. There is no deadline but we make decisions about our season in May and we choose work for the staged readings bi-annually in the summer and the winter.
