The Jeffrey Award call for 10-minute plays

Facebook Page

The Jeffrey Award invites NYC playwrights to submit a ten-minute play on the theme "Second Acts."

The Award will provide a director and actors for a one-time reading of the play. In addition to the opportunity to hear your play out loud, the winner will receive a $250 cash award.

All submissions must be received by Noon, May 3, 2017. 

Winner will be notified in July.

Guidelines for the submission:

  • NYC playwrights only; one submission per author.
  • No more than a 10-minute play, which is usually 8-13 pages [read your play aloud and allow for nonverbal action]
  • Maximum 3 characters
  • Submit a standard format PDF with no identifiers on the title page or in the script.
  • Play must be previously unproduced
  • The reading will be script-in-hand, no props--think table read-- with a short rehearsal period, with the focus on having the playwright hear the work out loud in front of people.

Send to: thejeffreyaward@gmail.com.

The subject line should include the THEME and the TITLE of your play. For example: Second Acts: Title of My Play

Please include your contact information (address, email, phone number) in the body of the email.

We look forward to reading your work.
