The Downtown Urban Theater Festival (DUTF) is currently accepting submissions for its 11th annual season to be held at HERE (here.org) in SoHo, NYC February 25-March 17, 2013.
DUTF, produced by Creative Ammo Inc., is a three-week celebration of urban theatrical expression by a cross-section of playwrights. This annual event showcases theatrical works that echo the true spirit of urban life and speak to a whole new generation who lives defy categorizing along conventional lines.
