NYCPlaywrights Podcast seeks 10-minute romantic comedies

The theme for the next NYCPlaywrights Podcast is "romantic comedy."
  • The play must be romantic in the sense of romantic love - not only sex.
  • The play doesn't have to be uproariously funny to be a romantic comedy but must have a happy ending - or at least not a downbeat or cynical ending.
  • Romantic comedies involving couples who are not heterosexual are welcome.
  • The Podcast pays actors for their performances - having many characters will count against your play due to the expense. And 10-minute plays usually work best with fewer characters.
These are the submission rules:
  • The deadline is Sunday, January 27, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST.
  • There is no fee for submission 
  • The script must be a romantic comedy.
  • The play can be no longer than ten pages (not counting title, list of characters etc.)
  • Only one submission per playwright.
  • The submission should be sent by email, with the script itself as a file attached to the email as a PDF file.
  • Send the script to hello@playwrightspodcast.com
  • All rights will remain with the playwright.
  • The script must be submitted by the author of the script, no agents or others may submit. 
  • Make sure you have your name and your email address on the script. 
  • The play may be submitted by any writer in the world but must be in English - non English phrases or words are fine but please include English translation.
  • It's OK if the play has been produced before. But not published.
  • The NYCPlaywrights decision is final.
  • We will notify submitters of the decision and announce the winning play on the NYCPlaywrights Podcast web site by Sunday February 3, 2018.
  • A recording of the selected play will be included in the next NYCPlaywrights Podcast.

We did a staged readings of eight romantic comedies in 2015 for a previous "Take Back the Rom Com" - you can see the web page for that here.

We recommend you listen to a podcast episode before submitting - especially to the segment in the "Rants and Raves" podcast where we talk about what makes a ten-minute play good.

If you have any questions write to us at hello@playwrightspodcast.com
