4th Annual TASN Short Play Festival

Deadline: March 1, 2021
or until 200 plays have been received, whichever occurs first.

They have met the 200 play limit and are no longer accepting new plays

The Actors Studio of Newburyport, MA is dedicated to New Play Development and will be holding its fourth annual Short Play Festival in the Fall, 2021. The submission window opens on January 1, 2021 and closes March 1, 2021, or until 200 plays have been received, whichever occurs first.

Length: 5-15 minutes. Send us your best. There is no theme and no restrictions on content.

Workshops, readings, and several previous productions are okay.

Limit: One play per playwright. There is no fee to submit.

As we enter 2021, we are hedging our bets. It’s possible that we’ll be back on the boards by the Fall, producing and performing live theater in front of our wonderful audiences. It’s also possible that live theater will remain elusive, shifting to 2022, and that our offerings will remain virtual for the coming year.

So, your play should be easily adaptable to the Zoom format AND be meant for the stage.

A play with 10 characters, elaborate settings, and a lot of props, isn’t going to work. A play with four or less characters with simple requirements probably will.

A PDF of your script (PDF’s only) which includes all your contact information. No Bios please.

We’d like the work to speak for itself.

In the past, we’ve requested a $5.00 donation per submission. TASN is non-profit and your tax deductible donations have been used to help defray the cost of producing our Festivals which are dedicated to the development of New Work.

If you’d like to male a donation, our mailing address is :(made payable) to The Actors Studio of Newburyport, The Tannery, Mill #1, Suite 5, Newburyport, MA, 01950.

Our judges will participate in multiple rounds of reading and after 24 semi-finalists are chosen, we will hold an All-Day Selection Sunday, putting all semi-finalists on their feet. The winners will be announced in summer, 2021, with the top-scoring play receiving the coveted Clopton Prize.

This Festival is sponsored by our Weekend Writers Workshop whose playwrights have been produced at more than 250 venues around the country. This Festival brought to by playwrights, for playwrights, and will be directed and performed by our amazing TASN talent. Good luck and see you at the show!
