Our first short play festival—an evening of ten 10-minute plays and musicals, will be performed in the Washington DC area in the fall of 2017. The only restriction is that it cannot be currently published (or be under consideration for publication). Only one submission is permitted per playwright. Past productions are ok. There is no fee for submissions. Plays will be accepted through the spring of 2017. Plays are adjudicated by theatre professionals. Audience members will not get a vote! The top ten plays will be published by Infinity Stage and performed onstage next year. In addition, we offer these prizes:

First place: $200
Second place: $150
Third place: $100
Fourth Place: $50

There are no restrictions on your submission, per se, but it is more likely to be considered if it meets the following criteria:

1. Its running time is between 7 and 17 minutes
2. It is light or comedic in nature, rather than dark and brooding
3. It contains no vulgarisms or nudity
4. It has a cast of 3-7
5. It has a preponderance of female roles
6. Any musical has a backing instrumental CD
7. It is typed in formatting approved by Samuel French
