The LIC One Act Festival 2015

web site


April 27th – May 10th

Submission Deadline: March 6, 2015

The LIC One ActFestival is now accepting plays for its 3rd annual. Secret Theater seeks to promote new work and emerging playwrights through our annual One ActFestivals. We also hope to promote playwrights through publishing anthologies of the winning plays; we have currently published five volumes of short plays.

No fee to submit or produce.

$250 Cash Prize for Best Play

$100 Cash Prize for Best director

$50 Cash Prize for Best Actor

$50 Cash Prize for Best Actress

4 hrs Free rehearsal time subject to availability.

Each Play is guaranteed 5 performances

The final selected plays are eligible for publishing in Top Secret Books’ The LIC One Act Festival Vol 3 on a non-exclusive basis.


Plays must be between 10 – 20 minutes in length.

Playwrights are responsible for selecting director and cast. (We may be able to help you if you do not have a director but preference will be given to playwrights who can provide their own directors and actors.)

Easy to produce. (If you have a play which for instance includes a swimming pool, a large amount of sets and props, or anything else too elaborate or is impossible to cast we may reject it)

Please submit plays in PDF or Word format only

We will divide selected plays into three programs which will play in an alternating order over two weeks.

Selected Playwrights will be informed March 15th.

Please email submissions to: submissions@secrettheatre.com

  • The full play
  • A synopsis of the play
  • The character breakdown
  • The play’s running time
  • The play’s production history (if it has been produced before and where)
