Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble (GTE) 2024 Festival seeks 10-minute plays


Deadline: October 31, 2023 8PM

Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble (GTE) is excited to invite all playwrights to participate in its 2024 Festival 10 event. This is GTE’s third such festival. It will feature a variety of 10-minute plays, both published and unpublished.

The guidelines for play submissions are as follows:

E-mail your original play(s) for consideration to Artistic Director Linda Pauline at linda.ghostlightte@gmail.com on or before 8:00 PM on Tuesday, October 31 st, 2023.

You may submit up to three plays.

Plays should meet the 10-minute length requirement and be able to be performed in a small stage setting.

There are no restrictions on theme or tone of the plays. We hope to showcase a variety of genres (comedy, drama, dramedy, etc.) that will be interesting to a diverse audience.

Select GTE members will review all submissions as they are received prior to the deadline. They will be looking for the following attributes:

Storytelling quality: Plays that feature a story with an arc, interesting characters and urgent conflict will have a greater chance of being produced than those that do not.

Dialogue/writing quality: Plays that demonstrate strong writing ability and realistic dialogue will have a greater likelihood of being selected than those that do not.

Simple set and props: Minimum set and props will be provided such as folding chairs and rehearsal boxes.

Opportunities for diverse performers: GTE attracts performers of all ages, and we anticipate we will have both teens and adults audition for the festival. Previous years’ festivals have had performers ranging from ages 13 to 70+. As such, we will select a mix of plays that enable a broad age range to audition and perform.

All playwrights of original works will be notified as to whether or not their play was selected for the festival by December 1, 2023.

If your play is selected for the festival, GTE will present a simple contract for review and signature prior to moving forward with production.

We hope to have the honor of reading YOUR play soon.
