Eastside Queer Stories 2020 – Casting Breakdown
Eastside Queer Stories is an LGBTQ one-act play festival featuring plays written by LGBTQ playwrights in Los Angeles.
Due to COVID-19, Q Youth Foundation has modified the play festival to be documented and recorded as a Podcast Style - Radio Play Presentation. If selected as a participant, we are taking extra precautions to keep the entire team safe and compliant to industry safety standards and setting up rehearsals via Zoom links. Actors must be in the Los Angeles area for the in-person live studio recording sessions in early December 2020- January 2021.
The ESQS Podcast Radio Plays will be released and uploaded in various audio streaming directories and accessible to our listening audiences in 2021.
