Village Open Call seeks CRAZY CHILDHOOD STORY 10-minute plays

web site

Deadline: September 12, 2020

“It was wrong on so many levels”

As they say: “Doesn’t matter how well your parents did with you, you will always find something to tell to your therapist. “

It’s so true. Doesn’t matter how loving and caring our parents are we all got some crazy childhood story. Funny, sad, disturbing or horrifying, we’ve all got them.

Village is calling for playwrights and storytellers to share their short plays/ stories with us based on this month theme: My Crazy Childhood Story.


It doesn’t have to be YOUR story. It can be a fictional story, a short play or a monologue. As long as it fits the theme.

5 best stories will be selected and performed by our pool of actors.

We will contact you by Sep 15, if your story is selected. ONLY 5 finalist will be contacted. If you haven’t heard from us, this means unfortunately your story wasn’t selected this time and you can try again next time.

Looking forward to reading your story!
