CulturalDC’s Source Festival seeks 10-Minute Plays

web site

CulturalDC’s Source Festival seeks 10-Minute Plays of any genre (comedy, drama, magical realism, etc.) that relate to one of the three themes listed below. The themes are inspired by the Festival's three Full-Length Plays. Summaries and information about these three plays can be found here.

  • Mortality/Immortality: Seeking plays that address living forever or examine death from a fresh perspective
  • Revenge: Seeking plays that address the need for retribution, large or small, comic or serious
  • Quests: Seeking plays that address the compelling pull to go on a journey to accomplish a specific task

To submit your 10-Minute Play to the Source Festival, please complete our online form and upload your play as a PDF file.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Plays must not have been previously produced or published.*
  • Playwrights may submit only one 10-Minute Play.
  • Plays may be no longer than 10 pages, exclusive of your title page.
  • Plays must be submitted in PDF format.
  • Playwrights must be based in the United States. We are not currently accepting international submissions.

Due: January 10, 2014 at 5 pm. No late entries. No exceptions. Playwrights whose scripts have been selected for Source Festival 2014 will be notified in the spring of 2014.
