Sundog Theatre seeks plays set on the Staten Island Ferry 2023


Deadline: December 16, 2022

Deadline: December 31, 2022 (deadline extended)

New and original, one-act plays about our favorite boats, the Staten Island Ferries.

Original plays not previously produced or published, with a signed note affirming that.

10-25 minutes in length and set on the Staten Island Ferry (Note: not performed on the Ferry).

Set in a contemporary time period. Strong priority will be given to plays with 2 characters, however, 3-character plays will be considered. No special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props/costumes, and no special sound or lighting.

Avoid overt and unnecessary sexual/violence situations and language since we cater to a broad audience.

No musicals, long monologues, poetry, rants, or verse.


We have weathered a lot the last few years, so this year's theme is Comedy. There can be serious moments peppered throughout, but we want to laugh. It can be dry, dark, or light comedy, satire -- whatever works in your play.

5 – 6 plays will be chosen by a reading team. Each writer will receive $200 and be produced in five March 2023 performances in Staten Island, NYC.

Please send two hard copies, bound or stapled, blind submission (removable cover page with title, author and all contact information) and the name of the play on each page to Sundog Theatre, “Scenes 2023”, PO Box 183, Staten Island, NY 10301.

Submissions should include brief synopsis, play history, a 70-word bio and also full resume of the writer.

Should be postmarked from now until December 16, 2022.

Do not submit plays electronically. Reasons: hard copies are easier to pass around/make notes on; protects your work; can’t get lost in email chains; and....easier on reading eyes.

Questions: info@sundogtheatre.org / Susan Fenley, Producer; Directors TBA. Actor auditions in February.
