VisionFest seeks plays

web site

LiveWire established VisionFest in 2008 as a community-driven festival featuring new, unique guidelines each year chosen by a public vote. Each year, we choose 6 to 10 plays to present at the festival. Programs are provided with ample space for the audience to offer feedback to the playwrights on their piece.


Plays must deal with technology's influence on society (or what happens when things short circuit). Submissions were open to local, regional, national and international playwrights.

  • Only original material may be submitted.
  • LiveWire will ONLY be accepting online submissions. Submissions should be sent to visionfest@livewirechicago.com.
  • Submissions should be formatted as a PDF (.pdf) or Word Doc (.doc) with the title of the play as the name of the file (i.e., My-Awesome-Play.doc).
  • Do not include playwrights' name on any of the pages in the document.
  • In the body of the email, please include: Playwrights' Name, Title of Play, Email Address, Phone Number and Current City of Residence.
  • Submissions open Jan 15 through Apr 15. (Any submissions sent outside of these dates will be discarded.)
  • Plays must be between 1 to 10 minutes in length; 1 to 10 pages depending on density of material. (Any scripts over 10 minutes will be discarded.)
  • One submission per playwright will be considered.
  • Previously produced scripts will NOT be accepted.
