Actors Theatre Playhouse Seeking Original Scripts for our next Ten Minute Play Festival


Deadline: September 30, 2023

The Actors Theatre Playhouse of West Chesterfield, New Hampshire, and Brattleboro, Vermont, is accepting Ten Minute Play Submissions for its Festival in June of 2024. 

The Playhouse is seeking ten-minute plays


All scripts will be accepted ONLY thru Email at


Email is best for us to get your manuscript to our review committee as quickly as possible. Please include a title page with your contact information attached to the script. Ten-minute plays should play in one scene, have minimal scenic requirements, not exceed ten-twelve pages in length and have two to six characters. Upon acceptable receipt, a return email will confirm your delivery to us.

The deadline for entry of a manuscript is September 30th, 2023. The number of scripts we can process for this year’s festival is limited, so submit soon if you want to be considered for production this year. We will keep scripts in excess for consideration next year. Approximately 12 finalists will be selected and notified, with eight Winners announced following auditions and casting in Jan 2024.

We regret that we cannot offer any financial prizes at this time. The winners will receive production of their play as part of our next Ten-Minute Play Festival and multiple tickets should the authors be able to attend.

The goal of the Festival is both to encourage the production of new works from regional writers while exposing our actors and directors to the techniques and practices of working with playwrights and producing new plays.
