Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry 2016

"Scenes..." is our 14th annual presentation of original, short
one-act plays about our favorite boats, the Staten Island Ferries.


Guidelines:
--Original plays not previously produced/published, with a signed note affirming. --15-25 minutes long with the Staten Island Ferry as the setting

--Contemporary, with 2-3 characters and no special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props, and no special sound or lighting

--Avoid overt and unnecessary sexual/violence situations and offensive language.
--No musicals, long monologues, poetry, or verse
--As in life, humor is good

Remuneration: Six authors will receive $100 each and be produced in our series of five March 2016 performances in Staten Island, NYC.
