Art House Productions is seeking monologues and art by women of color for the third annual “In Full Color,” moving this year to February 2017.

The hit show is returning with more women’s stories about love, loss, family, food, work, culture, education and more. Our writer-actresses have spoken about everything from being mistaken for a terrorist and dating while Asian to what really matters about Black lives.

“In Full Color” was founded in 2015 and gives underrepresented women of color a platform to share their stories while creating culturally aware communities. We spark conversations about diversity, prejudice, cultural exchange and other increasingly important topics. IFC has also inspired an educational outreach program, Thinking In Full Color.

The production is open to women writers of Black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern or Asian descent, of a mixed-race background, or belonging to any other ethnic minority group.

Selected writers will work with director and founder Summer Dawn Hortillosa and perform their pieces at Art House Productions, 136 Magnolia Ave., Jersey City, N.J. Non-performing writers may also be paired with an actress of similar background. Submissions may be poetry or prose, should be five minutes max and have minimal set/tech requirements. Limited prop storage is available. Non-union, non-pay.
