City Theatre Submission Guidelines

City Theatre Play Submissions Rules and Information

With the mission of developing and producing original short plays by established talents and promising new voices, City Theatre is looking for wonderful ten-minute plays for our annual Summer Shorts festival and other programming. Having produced hundreds of plays, we know what we want; scripts that are lively and timely, hilarious and thought-provoking, poignant and dangerous. We look for plays that span style and genre. We will consider bilingual scripts and ten-minute musicals. We have no restriction on the age range of the characters. In other words, for us to consider a script for production, we are seeking compelling plays that rise above the ordinary.

Please note as of March, 2011, City Theatre and the Actors Theatre of Louisville will no longer co-sponsor the National Ten-Minute Play Contest, though each theatre will continue its commitment to finding and producing excellent ten-minute plays, and getting to know the work of writers around the country. Playwrights who wish to submit to Actors Theatre of Louisville’s National Ten-Minute Play Contest should visit www.actorstheatre.org. Please review the criteria thoroughly before sending your submission to City Theatre.

Note: City Theatre does not produce any unsolicited full-length plays.

City Theatre Submission Guidelines; Plays will be accepted from August 15 – October 31, 2011. Scripts won’t be considered sooner or later!

Each playwright may submit only one script - send us your best!
No scripts will be returned - save postage. No SASE required.
Each script must be no more than ten pages long. We start counting when the actual play begins. Please remember to submit scripts with page numbers.
Previously submitted plays, children's shows, and any unsolicited longer one-act or full-length plays are not accepted and will not be returned.
Manuscripts must be typed and individually bound or stapled. Title page must include name, address, email address and phone number. We will accept electronic submissions provided all of the contact info and production history is included.
The volume of scripts submitted prevents us from providing feedback or criticism.
City Theatre will consider previously produced works, but there must be a production history included with submission.

Deadline - Submission Postmark Every Year by October 31st.
