938collective seeks plays for short play festival


Deadline: April 22, 2024


This year, 938collective will be hosting its second annual short play festival on Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15, at 8:00 PM.

What makes our short play festival model unique is its invitation to respond to a theme and collaborate with artists across all backgrounds and identities.

In anticipation of our event, we leave prospective playwrights with a breadcrumb in verse: 

          Girls and boys, come out to play,

          The moon doth shine as bright as day

          Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,

          And come with your playfellows into the street.

Whether you want to use something you’ve already written or feel moved to start a new project, our only rule is not to bring in a piece that you deem FINAL. We hope to cultivate an environment where the playwright’s work is a malleable entity—open to a workshop and open to feedback. 

The application below is also open to interested directors. Playwrights and directors will work closely together throughout this process and support all iterations of the plays presented, bringing our plays to life! 

This festival is a fantastic opportunity to get work on its feet in front of a supportive audience, and we encourage playwrights and directors of all experience levels to submit with us.

If you have any questions regarding the festival process or the form procedure, please feel free to email us at 938collective@gmail.com

Playwright and Director submissions are due by the end of the day on Monday, April 22nd.


Plays are 10 - 15 minutes in length
