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

The James Stevenson Prize for Short Plays

web site

The James Stevenson Prize for Short Plays In Honor of the Famed New Yorker Cartoonist and Writer

Submissions are now open for Playing on Air’s inaugural James Stevenson Prize for Short Plays.  In his editorial cartoons for The New Yorker, James Stevenson told stories about the human comedy with energy and economy. Playing on Air, a theater podcast and public radio show, will award three major prizes for short comedies that perpetuate Mr. Stevenson's spirit and wit, bringing the finest new American plays to a national audience - for free.

The Prize’s sponsor is James Stevenson's wife, Josie Merck.  For submission details, read on below.

FIRST PRIZE
$7,500 award, plus a Playing on Air recording of the winning play for radio and podcast distribution

SECOND PRIZE
 $2,000 award

THIRD PRIZE
 $1,000 award

What to Submit:

- Playing on Air invites writers to submit a short comedic play of 10-25 pages (not counting title page).

- All entries must be original, unproduced plays. Scripts may not be adapted from the playwright’s published or previously-produced work.

- Submissions will be judged for literary merit, originality, and regard for the spirit of James Stevenson. (editor's note: Slideshow of sample work of Stevenson here)

- Special consideration will be given to the script’s suitability for audio recording, as well as public radio broadcast.  Single-character monologues and plays that rely on the extensive use of a chorus, cast doubling, stage directions, or visual elements are discouraged.

- Please do not include sound design cues or instructions beyond standard stage directions.

Formatting requirements: title page (with no author information), 12pt font, 1 inch margins on every side, and numbered pages

SUBMISSION Rules:

  • One submission will be accepted per entrant. Additional entries will disqualify the writer. 
  • No fee is required for entry. 
  • All submissions will be judged "blind."  Again, uploaded scripts should not include the author's name, representation, or any identifying information. All author information should be provided via submission form, linked below. 
  • Submissions will be accepted from April 1, 2018 to noon on July 1, 2018.  We strongly encourage playwrights to submit their work early, as no exceptions will be made.
  • Due to number of entries, Playing on Air cannot provide feedback on any individual script.
  • Entrants must be at least 21 years of age by July 1, 2018. 

Entries can be submitted here, with scripts uploaded to the form as PDFs.   Please note: use the exact title of the play as your PDF filename.  Do not include author's name in the filename.

For samples of previous Playing on Air episodes, subscribe to the Playing on Air podcast on your favorite podcast app.

Onstage/Offstage is looking for 10-12 minute plays

web site

Onstage/Offstage (www.onstageoffstage.org) is looking for (2) 10-12 minute plays to produce and air on its podcast. The theme is "Moving On." Could be a relationship, a family event, a relocation, whatever fits the theme...but there must be a definite break with the past!
Selected plays will be broadcast on WRFI 88.1 Ithaca Community Radio and podcasted on our web site (www.onstageoffstage.org) and iTunes.

  • Submissions will air/be available as podcast on a date TBD.
  • Submissions are welcome by email ONLY from 12:01AM WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20 to 11:59PM TUESDAY, JUNE 27. 
  • Send submissions to sapiogeorge@gmail.com. 
  • The message header must read: OSOS Play submission/YOURLASTNAME/PLAY TITLE.
  • Selected plays will be cast, rehearsed, and recorded by Onstage/Offstage personnel.
  • Playwrights will be required to do a short interview to accompany their play.

Please make sure your play is suitable for a reading:

  • Please do not submit plays that require extensive reading of stage directions; if the play does not work as a reading, do not submit. We feel that the work should be overwhelmingly dialogue;
  • Two-three characters. No monologues.
  • No overly excessive language. Not that we are against strong language in a work, but I have to bleep it for broadcast. I leave it au naturel for the podcast;
  • Plays MUST BE IN PDF FORM with playwright contact and cast/tech/set info on cover page, and pages numbered. (You'd be surprised. No, really, you would.)
  • Please title your PDF documents in the following form: YOUR LAST NAME Play title.
  • No more than ONE submission per author.
  • By submitting, you agree to let Onstage/Offstage produce, air, and podcast your work. No worries: you will have prominent credit.
  • We cannot afford to pay you. We do regret this, as artists should be reimbursed for their craft. But we are a shoestring operation without funding. We hope that the podcast with your interview and produced work will suffice.

Address submissions and inquiries to: sapiogeorge@gmail.com

Parsnip Ship seeks plays for 2018

web site

THE PARSNIP SHIP IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW PLAYS AND NEW VOICES...
and for Season Four, we are specifically looking for plays written by playwrights of color.

As we believe there are as many distinctive styles and voices as there are playwrights, we remain open to a wide range of plays that will engage audiences in an intimate setting and on a podcast format. We see our recordings as a fun collaborative effort among us, the playwright, the directors, musicians and the actors! Before you send in your play for consideration, take a listen to one of our episodes from our past seasons.

Each play selected as part of our season will have one evening to be recorded in front of a live audience as a reading.  A guest musician is paired with the play to supplement the experience of hearing the text. We finish off the recording with a short and personal interview between the playwright and our host, Iyvon Edebiri. The recording is then edited and released as a podcast soon after.

The standard format for our live recordings are as follows (and is adjusted according to the length of the play):

  • Host Introduction
  • Mini-playwright interview
  • First song by musical guest
  • Act 1 of play
  • Second song by musical guest
  • Act 2 of play
  • Third song by musical guest
  • Host and playwright interview
  • Outro / Thank Yous
  • Fourth song by musical guest

Questions we like to ask ourselves as we consider a play:

  1. Does the play not only work, but excel in an audio only format?
  2. Is the play exciting and unexpected?
  3. Does the play express diversity in its perspective, voice, or content?
  4. Is this play engaged in socially conscious and civic dialogue?
  5. What would the world be missing if it didn’t have this play?
Due to last year’s overwhelming volume of submissions, this year we are doing a two-round submission cycle for Season Four. We are asking playwrights to submit the first 15 pages of their plays for consideration of Round One evaluations. If selected, playwrights will be asked to send their full length draft or complete script, for Round Two evaluation. We will be accepting submissions by individual playwrights, playwrights/director teams, playwright/director/music teams from March 24th - April 27th, 2018 for Season Four (September 2018 - June 2019). We fully encourage individual playwrights to apply; our Artistic team will work with you to pair a director, cast, and musical guest from our pool of amazing collaborators.  
The logistical requirements to know before applying:

  • We can ONLY accommodate up to 6 readers (this includes a reader for stage directions)
  • A play must be no more than 90 minutes.
  • Selected playwrights must come to an episode prior to their scheduled episode, especially if they’ve never attended a live recording of The Parsnip Ship
  • We prefer New York City or locally based playwrights
  • Our playwright must be present for the live recording (and usually rehearsals too)
  • We can accommodate 3 inputs for our musical guest, i.e. 1 mic and 2 instruments/2 mics and 1 instrument/3 mins

Please follow the instructions to apply via the submit form.

Panglossian Productions is seeking 10-minute plays

web site

Panglossian Productions is seeking 10-minute plays for our new podcast, the Best of All Possible Podcast. The weekly podcast showcases short new plays by putting them up for cold reads with a carefully selected and talented cast. Afterwards, the panel (typically consisting of the moderator, cast, a theatre professional or special guest) discuss the play, the topics it raises, possible staging scenarios, or whatever the panel decides to discuss.

Here is what you need to know:
-The submission process is ongoing. As long as the podcast is running, we are happy to receive submissions
-You may submit more than one play (as long as you feel that it is worthwhile, submit it)
-Plays must be approximately 10-minutes in length (you can still submit one-act or full length plays through literary@panglossian.org for our Plays In Progress series, but they will not be considered for the podcast)
-You will be notified via email if your play is selected to be featured in a podcast
-Submissions should be emailed in PDF format to literary@panglossian.org and contain the following information
1. Playwright name
2. Playwright contact information including email address
3. A brief statement about the playwright and the piece itself (be creative, but honest)
-If you would like to listen to our first 9 episodes, you can find them on iTunes
-If you have further questions, please email them to literary@panglossian.org

Why are we doing this?
According to our namesake, the dementedly optimistic Dr. Pangloss, “All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds.”

Most of the time, the world falls short. As any young artist who decides to build a life in the performing arts discovers, it’s hard to get experience without already having it. It’s even harder to convince people to take a gamble on new works and innovative ideas, no matter how exciting they may be.

What’s safe is always… well… safe. And that’s fine. But safe things don’t ignite passion in us. They don’t make us catch our breath or question how we live or want to go running into the streets to tell people what we’ve seen. So, we choose projects that take risks and that are worth the risk.

We exist in order to boldly and thoughtfully create:

Unpretentious productions that challenge our audience without patronizing them.
Opportunities for talented and dedicated young artists to gain meaningful experience.
Development of new, innovative, substantive, and semi-crazy artistic ventures.
Visit us online at panglossian.org or find Panglossian Productions on facebook.

Amy’s Horse is seeking short plays

web site

Amy’s Horse is seeking short plays, up to 15 minutes in length, to be produced as part of our podcast.

What is Amy’s Horse?

Amy’s Horse is a theatre podcast that produces two short plays per episode. Actors in multiple locations connect to our Vermont studio via the internet for the live recording of the show. 

The podcast launched in July, and so far we've produced 14 plays in our first 7 episodes, featuring the work of 13 playwrights and 30 actors! The episodes are available on our website or through the iTunes Store, where the podcast is consistently rated as “New & Noteworthy”.

The goal is to bring together emerging playwrights and established actors to read new works, then chat about them. At the end of each reading, the actors and author stick around to speak about the play and promote their current projects. It’s a very light-hearted, fun, and relaxed atmosphere.


Guidelines:

- Plays should be unpublished at time of submission
- Small casts preferable
- We are mainly seeking comedies, but dramas also considered
- Plays must be a maximum of 15 minutes in length

Most importantly, if you listen to our existing episodes, you’ll see that the plays we select lend themselves to an audio only production. We use minimal sound effects and stage directions, so plays with extensive visual elements or action may not work well in our format. Please submit accordingly.

How to submit:

Please send a PDF copy of your script to submissions@amyshorse.com

We are seeking scripts on an ongoing basis. If you have previously submitted there’s no need to re-submit. Thank you.

Saturday, June 13, 2015

Seeking submissions of short scripts for podcast

web site

Seeking submissions of short scripts (plays, monologues, screenplays, sketches, etc.) ideally between 10-30 minutes in length, for a podcast called Amy's Horse. Kind of an NPR vibe. Actors in multiple locations will connect remotely from their own homes via the internet, and be recorded in a studio in Vermont. We’ll chat with the authors, read a short script or two, talk about the plays, and gossip about what we’re all working on! It’s more of a gathering. Very relaxed. Part play reading, part cocktail party, all fun! All subject matter is welcome. 

More info available at amyshorse.com

Please send submissions to : submissions@amyshorse.com

And Then She Said a Funny Thing

Ever been told that women aren't as funny as men? Yes, us too. In fact, we got so sick of hearing it that we decided to answer back.

And Then She Said a Funny Thing... is a brand new comedy podcast featuring bitesize funnies written by women. Our pilot episode, recorded at Omnibus Clapham in September 2014, was a resounding win and following the success of our Kickstarter Campaign plans are now underway for Episode 2!

We want your sketches, rants, poems and funny words in any form to feature in our live shows. Selected pieces will be performed by our ludicrously talented cast and released onto the airwaves for all to enjoy.

We'll accept words on any topic and in any style, and all writers are given full credit for their material. The only rules are that pieces must be:
  • Comic Writing 
  • Suitable for audio performance and recording 
  • Written by a woman (or women) 
  • 90 Seconds long or less

Submissions for our next recording on 17th July at Omnibus are OPEN!

Please send to: funnythingpieces@gmail.com

12 Peers Theater is accepting play submissions

web site

12 Peers Theater is accepting play submissions for a 2015 – 2016 New Play Podcast Series from April 10th – June 15th, 2015.

12 Peers Theater is accepting unsolicited submissions of new full-length plays to be recorded and released monthly on a podcast about and featuring new plays. In an effort to maximize exposure for playwrights and assist them in securing full productions, 12 Peers Theater will record and release readings of new plays to be aired on our 12 Peers Podcast throughout late 2015 and 2016.

We understand that there are many forms of theatrical storytelling, but here are a few guidelines that will help you determine if your play is right for us. We will not consider plays that have had a full production elsewhere. We will only accept full-length plays, no one-acts, collections of one-acts, or musicals. Due to recording limitations, plays should be able to be performed with no more than 6 actors (doubling permitted) As a company we are drawn to plays with themes of social and cultural identity, plays that are politically, socially, and ethically relevant, and plays with mythic themes. We are also drawn to plays with a clear sense of dramatic action, an excellent use of language, and a creative use of theatrical resources.

If you would like to submit please send your play, a brief synopsis, and a biography to Matt Henderson, 12 Peers Theater’s Literary Manager, at mhenderson@12peerstheater.org by June 15th, 2015.
