Our subscriber favorite, with drama, comedy and intrigue! Seven 10-minute plays - all world premieres!
Drama, Comedy, Intrigue and Mystery are all on the plate for our playwriting
festival. You vote for the winning plays ... and every play is a World Premiere!
Last year our International Playwriting Festival was sold out for virtually
every performance so be sure to get your tickets early. Each night you will
enjoy comedy, mystery, drama and intrigue and you get to vote on the winning
plays! 7 different directors ... 7 different plays ... what more could you ask?
Nightly you will also hear one of our runner-up plays read as a "Readers
Theater" directed by Gary McCarver.
This is a 10-minute playwriting festival. All plays must be performed in
approximately 10 minutes.The work must have a beginning that grabs your
attention, a middle with some meat and character development, and an ending that
makes sense. It can surprise you, shock you, make you laugh, make you cry, make
you think, but it must have an ending.Everything else! Is the dialog natural for
the characters created? Are the characters ones that an audience can hate, love,
believe ... is there some emotion touched? Is it something that an audience will
remember? Something to tell someone else about? In short, is it a good
story!Rules for submitting your plays
