Source Festival 2016 10-Minute Play Submissions

web site

Source Festival seeks 10-Minute Plays of any genre (comedy, magical realism, drama, etc.) that relate to one of the themes listed below. These themes are inspired by the festival's three Full-Length Plays; please read the summaries and information about these plays here.

We encourage innovative/humorous/surprising scripts that address one of the following themes:

Secrets & Sound: seeking plays that explore a hidden truth or discovery. Your play must include a specific sound landscape or idea (such as cassette tapes, voicemail messages, vinyl, Suri, 8-track, etc), and be an active component of the play (as opposed to characters that happen to be musicians and play a drum on stage). Inspired by STATIC, written by Tom Horan.

Heroes & Home: seeking plays that address our modern sense of belonging while contending with an aspect of bravery. Courage can take many different forms, and we are looking for scripts that reveal this contemporary perspective within a domestic environment. Updated twists on myths & legends might serve as one potential starting point, but we encourage you to branch out into other ideas. Inspired by BURIES CITIES, written by Jennifer Fawcett.

Dreams & Discord: seeking plays that address the juxtaposition between the lives we lead and the lives we wish for. We urge the exploration of the potential tension/energy between commitment and desire. We want scripts that explore how these forces interact between dynamic characters (couples of all permutations, families, strangers in a specific environment, etc). Inspired by BALLAST, written by Georgette Kelly.
