Bare-Knuckle Theatre Festival Submissions

web site

The cops tried to shut us down, but they couldn’t shut us down. They tried to contain us, but they couldn’t contain us. No, ladies and gentlemen, The Bare-Knuckle Theatre Festival is back for round two!

Five shows go in, one show comes out on top.

In the spirit of community: companies, organizations and self-producing individuals with original one-act plays are encouraged to submit. It’s a great opportunity to reach new audiences, self-promote, network and bring a little extra cash your way.

The Rules

Submit your best 10-20 minute play. After 20 minutes it will fade to black.
Bring your own cast. We can supply a stage manager the night of.
Bare-knuckle plays require minimal sets (Tables and chairs provided), no major lighting or sound cues.
No submission fee, only paying attendees can vote.
Any theme or topic, no casting limitations.
Winner by audience ballot gets 50% of the profits, so bring fans.
Hosted by your well-intentioned friends at the Altruistic Theatre Company.
