web site

Submission dates for MTWorks' FIRE-WORKS:

July 1st - July 31st, 2013 (There is no reader's fee for plays submitted during these dates)

August 1st - Sept 1st, 2013 (Require a $10.00 reader's fee)

Plays submitted outside of the above dates will not be considered.

MTWorks’ FIRE-WORKS is our 10-15min short play competition featuring works that challenge our perception of current events that have us fired-up! For our upcoming season we are looking for plays that deal with the subject of GUN CONTROL.

The winning playwrights will be presented at our FIRE-WORKS benefit event performed by MTWorkers (We recommend using them as inspiration). FIRE-WORKS are fully staged (not a reading).


We are currently interested in 10-15 min short plays.

Applicants must submit the following:

  • A full copy of your play in word or pdf format.
  • Synopsis.
  • Plays must be inspired by the subject of GUN CONTROL
  • Please get to know our MTWorkers and use them as a source of inspiration. If selected they are the ones who will be performing your play.
  • If you applied for FIRE-WORKS before, you must submit a different play.
  • You can only submit one play per year per program (it is OK to submit one play to FIRE-WORKS and one play to the National NewBorn Festival the same year).
  • We are interested in plays that have not been produced in NY (Readings OK).
  • All material must be emailed (all together in one email) to plays@mtworks.org with [FIREWORKS: title of the play and your name] on the subject line.
  • If your contact information changes  you are required to update your information by sending an email to plays@mtworks.org with [FIRE-WORKS: updated contact information for-your name] on the subject line.

Winners will be contacted around September.
