Play of the Month - September 2011

Announcing NYCPlaywrights September 2011 Play of the Month call for submissions.

Send your 10-minute play to NYCPlaywrights.

One play is selected from the submissions for that month and NYCPlaywrights videorecords a reading of the play. The play will be posted on the NYCPlaywrights web site.

For more details about the play of the month project go to this page on the site: play of the month or click the tab at the top of this web page.

Since the NYCPlaywrights web site is viewed by 2,500+ unique visitors per month, there is the potential for many more people to see a reading-performance of the play than at a typical 10-minute play festival.

10-Minute Play of the Month: SEPTEMBER 2011

The theme for September is the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 World Trade Center attacks.

Deadline: Sunday, September 4, 2011, 11:59 PM

1. Send only one ten minute play per author to info@nycplaywrights.org.

2. The script submission should be sent by email, with the play itself as a file attached to the email. File format should be in either Microsoft Word (.doc) or .pdf.

3. The script can be no longer than 10 pages (not including title page, setting info page, etc. but only from where the actual on-stage directions and dialog begin.)

4. The script should be in standard playscript format. If you are not sure what that is, see this page on the NYCPlaywrights web site:


Plays that are not in standard format will be rejected immediately.

5. Make sure you have your name and your email address on the title page of the script.

6. Plays can be from anybody, anywhere in the world, but must be primarily in English (a few non-English phrases are acceptable, but the phrases must include English translations in production notes or stage directions.)

7. There is no fee for submission - and no payment given for the plays selected. Do not send a submission if you are expecting monetary compensation.

8. The NYCPlaywrights selection decision is final and NYCPlaywrights reserves the right to select no plays from those submitted.

9. The selected play will be videotaped as a reading during an NYCPlaywrights meeting and posted shortly after, during the month of September.

10. The playwright will be asked to review the video recording before
it is made public.

11. The video recording of the play reading will be posted to the NYCPlaywrights YouTube account and from there embedded into the NYCPlaywrights blog. The embedded section may be an excerpt of the play reading rather than the entire reading.

12. The play must reflect the month's theme in some meaningful way.
