The Ophelia Theatre Group is requesting submissions for their first annual OPHELIA’S NEW PLAY FESTIVAL in Astoria, NY. In an effort to bring more art to our incredible community, we are launching this competition for one acts shows. 6 Plays will be selected to be performed three times in late September/early October, followed by a gala in which a winner will be chosen by a panel of judges.

The winner gets a workshop production of his choosing the following year.

This is a great opportunity for playwrights to work with driven peers and get their names out there! 

Submission Guidelines:

*25 to 60 minute plays. 

*If your play is picked, you are responsible for the production of the play. We will help with marketing, and if we can, rehearsal space.

*This is not only for New York residents, if you are able to produce the show in NYC, SUBMIT!

*Include name, email, phone number, and title on the cover page.

*Play must be received on or before June 15, 2015 to Opheliasnewwork@gmail.com

*Limited to one submission per playwright.

The shows will be chosen by a group of readers, with the selected 6 finalists to be announced July 1st.
