The Nu∙10 Halloween Play Festival “Horrors from the Grave” 10-minute plays

web site

Building on the success of our first 10-minute play festival this past June, the Nu∙10 returns this fall to host a spine-chilling, hair-raising, bloodcurdling short play festival for performances on October 30, 31 and November 1!

Deadline for submissions is September 15, 2014.
No more than 50 submissions will be accepted for this festival.
Whether an original work, re-imagining a classic horror story or an existing play of haunting proportions, each play should be creepy, chilling, spooky and wickedly entertaining!

Up to 8 plays will be chosen.

Audiences will be invited to vote on the selections at each performance with the 1st and 2nd place winners announced after the last performance and sharing a percentage of the house sales.

• Plays must be submitted via electronic PDF format to: submissions@desotellestudio.com (Do not mail printed scripts.)

The readers are given specific directions for scoring each eligible play and they independently complete this assignment.
