SPF Short Play Festival ~ 13th Annual Short Play Festival NYC


Deadline: March 25, 2024


Remember: it’s all about New York City!

Submissions close March 25, 2024

Plays run one weekend out of three, Thurs – Sat 7pm, Sunday 3pm.

Dates: June 6 – 23, 2024

Plays must have a running time of 15 minutes or less (which roughly translates to 15 pages) to qualify for the weekly contest. Each week a winner – selected by audience vote – receives the honor of “Best of the Week” and $100 prize.

The shows are produced entirely by the playwright and their team, are non union, and are presented at the Steve & Marie Sgouros Black Box Theatre – located on the 3rd floor of the historic Players Theatre in the heart of Greenwich Village – NYC. There is one-time $50 tech fee for any play that is chosen and decides to participate. There is NO submission fee.

Please DO NOT submit plays that are for Boo or LUV. They will be rejected automatically–remember, this is for SPF, so we are looking for anything to do with NYC!
