Hit & Run VI

(no web site available)

Play-Makers Spokane is pleased to announce its call for comedic scripts for Hit & Run VI, a staged reading of short plays in October.

*What? 10-minute or 15-minute plays (15 page maximum)

*One script only. It must be a comedy.

*Playwrights can be from anywhere but plays must be in English.

*Standard play format preferred.

*There are no restrictions on content but our audiences prefer more family-friendly fare.

*Send the full script with a title page with your contact information, a synopsis and character breakdown, and a short bio. Include all the information in one document. The document should be labeled the play's name_your last name (i.e. Hamlet_Shakespeare).

Deadline: June 1, 2012

Notification: September

Submission procedure: E-mail your script as a Microsoft Word document or PDF to playmakersspokane@gmail.com. The subject line should include your name and the title of the play.

Fee? None. No payment to writers as this is an all-volunteer event.

Questions? Contact Hit & Run coordinator Sandra Hosking at playmakersspokane@gmail.com.


Please only submit one play. Subsequent submissions will not be read.

Plays must be true comedies, not dramas with humor, although the best comedies have a point. Plays that are layered generally are more satisfying than those that have one running gag or are just cute.

Read Gary Garrison's Perfect 10.

Avoid cliches, such as having a character continually get another character's name wrong.

Thank you and we look forward to reading your work.
