  • Submissions will be accepted starting September 25 until 250 plays have been received.
  • Only the first 250 10-minute plays will be accepted.
  • Comedies only! No musicals. No dramas. No one-person plays.
  • Plays may have been produced previously but not in the DFW Metroplex.
  • Plays may not be published.
  • Playwrights may submit only one 10-minute play. Additional plays submitted by a single person will result in disqualification.
  • A cast list and brief synopsis must be included.
  • Only PDF files will be accepted. Other formats will not be read.
  • Name and contact info must not appear anywhere on the script (i.e. this is a blind submission process).

  • There is no fee.
  • Please do not submit a play you have sent to us in the past!
Up to ten plays will be chosen to be a part of Rover’s 10-Minute Play Festival, April 11-20, 2024, with all winners receiving a $100 prize. The audience will also vote on the “Best of the Fest,” and that overall winner will receive an additional $100.

Rover Dramawerks performs in a black box theatre set in a thrust that seats about 100. Please take this into consideration when presenting your work to us. We strongly recommend that you check out our website at https://www.roverdramawerks.com/ to see the types of plays we generally produce.

Please note: The judges reserve the right not to award prizes or productions if they feel the caliber of plays received does not warrant a winner.
