Call for Plays Deadline: 5/8


The first Where Eagles Dare Festival of Ten-minute Plays is on the subject of Love and Death, and if it works out, they'll repeat it every month. The rules are easy:• Send no money!• E-mail your script in Word format only to The next production dates are 5/16 - 17, absolute submission deadline 5/8.
Performances will be Saturday at 8 and Sunday at 7, with a tech rehearsal at 2pm Saturday and 1 pm Sunday for plays going up the same evening. Each play will be performed once. These dates leave you no time for second thoughts - better get cracking!

• Plays should fit on no more than 10 pages, in standard playscript format. Standard playscript format for them means the characters' names in the middle, with stage directions indented, in 12 pt Times Roman with 1-in. margins all round. There should be a blank line above each centered character name. Add a title page with your name on it, the title of the play, contact info, and copyright notice. (Also put the title at the top of the playscript.) If the play is all monolog, better make it no more than 5 pages. (They're aiming for that ten-minute limit, but it's not an absolute requirement.)

You produce your play, recruiting a director and cast, paying for rehearsal space, etc. (Where Eagles Dare will give you a hefty discount if you rehearse here.)

Your play, if chosen, will go into 1 of 2 evenings of about 12 10-minute plays, for a total of about 24 plays per weekend. Each evening will comprise 2 acts of about 6 plays, with an intermission. Where Eagles Dare will provide shared scenery - rehearsal cubes, tables, chairs, etc. You must provide any hand props, which must be small enough to bring on - and take away after your show is over.• Where Eagles Dare will promote your play, but you should too.

• Tickets for anyone but the playwright and director are $20. The playwright is comped, natch (to the program that contains his/her show only). The director will also be comped. If there aren't enough seats to accommodate all patrons, they might seat playwrights and directors only for the act in which their plays appear. Tell all your friends and relatives to buy tickets in advance - they expect to sell out!• There will be no Equity showcases. There will be no reserved comps except press. There will be no other reservations except for tickets sold in advance through SmartTix.

• Where Eagles Dare will endeavor to publish your play, unless you decline permission, in an anthology, at no charge to the playwright. (Royalties will be paid.)• When possible, a videographer will record the proceedings. Copies are $25 for a whole evening, with titles and credits, including an individual video file of your play (also with titles and credits) suitable for posting on the Web. So get that ten-minute play in to the first Where Eagles Dare Ten-minute Play Festival right away! Time's a-wasting!
