Future Ten seeks 10-minute plays

web site
It's time once again to submit your ten-minute plays for the eighth installment of Future Ten, the annual ten-minute play festival produced by the alternative art space Future Tenant. Future Ten 8 is scheduled to run at the art space, located at 819 Penn Avenue in the heart of Pittsburgh's Cultural District, in November.

Please visit http://hnz.cm/future-ten-9 to submit up to two plays for consideration. There is NO FEE for submission.

In order to be considered for production, scripts must be received in PDF, DOC or DOCX format no later than Sunday, July 29, 2012.

Other submission guidelines are as follows:
  • Since the general rule is that one typewritten page of a play equals one minute of stage time, each play should be approximately ten pages in length. Scripts longer than 12 pages will not be considered.
  • Playwrights must submit their play in PDF, DOC or DOCX format using our online submission process. Visit http://hnz.cm/future-ten-9 to submit your play for consideration.
  • Writers may submit up to two (2) scripts; however, no more than one (1) play per writer has the possibility of being selected for production. If you submit more than two scripts, we will consider only two, and the two we review will be chosen at random.
  • One-act or full-length plays, musicals, children's plays, or plays that have been professionally produced will not be considered.
  • Due to the limitations of our space, please craft your work to meet the following criteria: cast size – 2 to 10; set – basic chairs and tables; costumes – try to avoid costume changes; props – limited to a few items that you or your director must provide; lighting – full, dim and blackout are the only three light changes we can offer at this time. (NOTE: We will not necessarily rule out a quality script based on a production issue, but we may ask you to make changes in order for your work to meet the limitations of our space.)
A panel of judges will choose their favorite plays, and the selected playwrights will be notified by early September. Open casting will be held at Future Tenant in mid-September (dates TBA).
