NYCPlaywrights April 2013 Play of the Month

Submissions are no longer being accepted for the NYCPlaywrights April 2013
Play of the Month.

The selections will be announced soon

The theme is "Spring Cleaning" There could be an actual spring cleaning, or the play could deal with renewal/new beginnings. Although if you could have both that would be awesome.

The deadline is Sunday, March 31, 2013 at 11:59 PM EDT.

This time we are doing something a little different - we are picking up to five plays of the month. We received many good plays for February and it was a shame that we could only select one.

We will video-record readings of all the plays selected, and the videos will be posted (with author permission) to the NYCPlaywrights web site.


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

~ The script must be submitted by the author of the script, no agents or others may submit.

~ 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. Most preferable is .pdf (Portable Document Format) because it will retain your original script

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

~ 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, or that have more than 10 pages (not counting title page, etc.) will be rejected immediately.

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

~ 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.)

~ There is no fee for submission.

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

~ A play that has had a production is acceptable.

~ A play that has been published is not acceptable.

~ All rights will remain with the playwright.

~ There is no monetary compensation.

~ The selected play(s) will be video-recorded and posted April or May 2013.

~ Video recording(s) of the play(s) will be posted to the NYCPlaywrights YouTube account and from there embedded into the NYCPlaywrights blog. The playwright(s) will be asked to review the video recording and approve it before it is made public.

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

~ The play should be a complete 10-minute play, not an excerpt from a longer work.
