Inicios 2024

This Open Call is for all latine playwrights living in the Chicagoland area.

As we embark on the second edition of this incredible journey, we embrace new beginnings and the profound narratives waiting to be unearthed. Building upon CLATA's commitment to amplifying Latine voices on stage, INICIOS continues its role as a nurturing ground for emerging Latine voices often overlooked in theatrical storytelling.

Three plays, each with a $1000 award, will be selected by a renowned playwrights' panel to showcase free public staged readings from May 15th to May 17th.
