Amy’s Horse is seeking short plays, up to 15 minutes in length, to be produced as part of our podcast.
What is Amy’s Horse?
Amy’s Horse is a theatre podcast that produces two short plays per episode. Actors in multiple locations connect to our Vermont studio via the internet for the live recording of the show.
The podcast launched in July, and so far we've produced 14 plays in our first 7 episodes, featuring the work of 13 playwrights and 30 actors! The episodes are available on our website or through the iTunes Store, where the podcast is consistently rated as “New & Noteworthy”.
The goal is to bring together emerging playwrights and established actors to read new works, then chat about them. At the end of each reading, the actors and author stick around to speak about the play and promote their current projects. It’s a very light-hearted, fun, and relaxed atmosphere.
- Plays should be unpublished at time of submission
- Small casts preferable
- We are mainly seeking comedies, but dramas also considered
- Plays must be a maximum of 15 minutes in length
Most importantly, if you listen to our existing episodes, you’ll see that the plays we select lend themselves to an audio only production. We use minimal sound effects and stage directions, so plays with extensive visual elements or action may not work well in our format. Please submit accordingly.
How to submit:
Please send a PDF copy of your script to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are seeking scripts on an ongoing basis. If you have previously submitted there’s no need to re-submit. Thank you.
