Call for Plays

Actors Theatre of Louisville and Miami's City Theatre have joined forces to co-sponsor the National Ten-Minute Play Contest. Each playwright may submit only one script. No scripts will be returned—save postage. No SASE required. Entries will be acknowledged by postcard in January and all playwrights will be notified when or before the winner is announced in the fall. Each script must be no more than ten pages long. Previously submitted plays, plays that have received an Equity production, musicals, children's shows, and any unsolicited longer one-act or full-length plays are not accepted and will be returned. Plays that have received Equity waver showcase productions are eligible. Each manuscript must be typed and individually bound or stapled. Title page must include name, address and phone number. Please include an e-mail address if possible. No electronic submissions. All ten-minute plays will be considered for the Heideman Award ($1000), the Humana festival of New American Plays, City Theatre’s Summer Shorts Festival and the Short Cuts Tour. Plays that meet the following criteria will also be considered for the annual Actors Theatre Apprentice Showcase: age range 18-28; minimal sets, minimal props, minimal costume requirements. Playwrights must be citizens or permanent residents of the USA.

Submission postmark by 11/01.

Actors Theatre of Louisville
316 West Main Street
Louisville, KY 40202-4218
