Studio Players 11th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival


Deadline: February 12, 2024 by 11:59 PM EST
Or they have received 300 submissions

This competition is for 10-minute plays only; it is open to any playwright. There is NO submission fee, NO production fee. The judges will be members of the Studio Players theatre community: board members, directors, and patrons. The rules are simple and are as follows:

1. Any playwright may enter; please submit only ONE play per playwright. If a playwright submits more than one script, only the first one received will be considered and the others will be eliminated.

2. The play must be a 10-minute play (meaning it will be approximately 10 pages long (dialogue). If it’s a monologue/one-person piece, it should come in under 10 pages).

3. All plays should be emailed, with a separate cover page containing the following information: play's title, author's name, email address, mailing address and phone number. The play itself should only have the title and a brief synopsis; no identifying information should be contained in or on the 10-page script.

4. To be considered, each script must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST February 12, 2024.

5. The contest is open to the first 300 entries received.

6. Winning entrants agree to a full production of their scripts and video recording and presentation of their scripts.

That's it! The top 7 scripts (as determined by the judges) will be performed by active members of the Bluegrass theatre community. Each play will be a fully realized production; each performance will contain all the winning scripts. The 7 selected playwrights will each receive $250 in prize money.

The script selection process is anonymous and therefore we won't be posting notifications during the deliberations. We will announce the 15 finalists and 7 winners after the selection process is complete.

All entries should be sent to: 10minuteplayfestlex@gmail.com with "10-min Play Fest" in the subject line.
