St. Paul's Arts Council Short New Play Festival (Indiana)

web site

The St. Paul's Arts Council is showcasing original, never been produced short plays.

We are featuring two categories of short plays, 2-Minute and 10-Minute Plays. We ask that, due to the 200th anniversary of its publication, you use Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus as your inspiration.

Those chosen will be performed as a stage reading at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in New Albany, Indiana on Sunday February 11 at 2:30 pm.

Submissions of original plays in either format, will be accepted beginning Friday, September 1, 2017. Submission deadline is Friday, December 15, 2017.

The number of plays to be produced will be at The St. Paul's Arts Council discretion and will depend on the mix of qualified submissions. Original plays accepted for the Festival will be announced between January 1 and January 15, 2018. There are no submission fees for this Festival. There will be no monetary stipend for plays used in the Festival, however, audience members will vote for their favorite play in both the 2-Minute and 10-Minute categories. Winning playwrights will receive a $25 cash prize.
