The 7th Annual Festival of Shorts

web site



Submitted short plays must be less than 15 minutes long, centered on the theme “paradox”.

Submissions that have been previously produced WILL NOT be accepted.

Only one submission per author will be accepted.

Eight finalists will be chosen by a panel of readers. Reading will be blind, so AUTHOR NAME and other author information are not to be included anywhere on the play. Failure to comply will result in disqualification.

SUBMIT one PDF with only the PLAY TITLE and name the file “your play title / blind”. And submit another PDF with your full title page and name the file “your play title.”

Pagination should begin on page 1 of the text. Please include name of play on each page.

Please submit in pdf format by EMAIL.

Please use no more than 6 characters in your play.

Please be aware that selected plays will be staged with minimal sets, props, costumes, lights and sound.

The eight selected plays will be assigned a director who will best present the work, and the director will cast appropriately..

The eight finalists have the chance to compete for an audience “peoples’ choice” award as well as judges’ awards.

Lastly, we are a community theater, so please no X-rated scripts. We simply can’t perform them for our audiences.
