The Fresh Fruit Festival 2023 10-Minute Play Contest


Deadline: April 17, 2023


Presented as a booster for the Fresh Fruit Festival ‘Build A Future’ campaign. Cash awards, publicity, and more fun than ever with Our Very Own Frank Calo hosting – as a part of the ’23 Fresh Fruit Festival MAINSTAGE at The Wild Project..

Thanks to the generosity of New York City and the Department of Cultural Affairs there are NO submission Fees.

Schedule: Submit Deadline: April 17
Selections by: April 24
Performance: May 6

$300 in cash awards, an Audience Choice Award + audience and judges voting.

Required: LGBTQ Topical Plays, for 2 to 3 characters

We provide: an assortment of basic set items- tables, chairs, etc. and some varied lighting looks as presets. There will be a short “mini-tech” the day of performance.

You provide: the play rehearsed and cast, ready to roll.

We will be looking for quality of course, but selecting also based on subject variety, diversity, humor, – and assembling a good mix for the presentation. We will also be considering these submissions for other divisions of the Festival to come. You can upload up to 2 files in the form, so please provide a complete casting breakdown (we may be able to help with suggestions) and synopsis. If not enough room in the form for anything, add it to your 2nd upload file. Thank you for supporting us.
