13th Annual Short Play Festival
Don’t Mess with Auntie!

They’re fierce. They’re funny. Their frybread!!

Our communities shape us - our identities, our values, our taste in food. And, in our Native communities, the list of those who rear us extends far beyond that westernized “nuclear family.” This year, Native Voices invites you to tell a story inspired by an Auntie (or, many Aunties…let’s be honest)!

Don’t Mess with Auntie. We know it, we live by it, and goodness, do we have stories about it! Native Voices’ 2023 Short Play Festival is calling all Auntie stories. Laugh, cry, and learn your lessons as we assemble at the Autry for our 13th Annual Short Play Festival. Please keep your plays under 10 minutes. (Or you’ll have Auntie to answer to!!)

Plays selected to participate in the 13th Annual Short Play Festival will also be entered to win the Thomas Studi Gadugi Audience Prize of $500 and the Von Marie Atchley Excellence in Playwriting Award of $1,000.

Scripts longer than 15 pages or read aloud at longer than 10 minutes will not be accepted. Fresh, surprising perspectives are welcome!
