Between Us Productions 7th Annual Take Ten Festival

web site

Between Us Productions is seeking plays for its 7th Annual Take Ten Festival.  16 plays enter and compete for the titles of best play, best director, best actor, and best actress, with cash prizes and the opportunity to workshop a longer play.  The festival will be in May in Manhattan.  There is no fee to submit, but there is a $150 submission fee if accepted, which includes 2 guaranteed performances (up to 4 if your play moves on), 45 minutes to an hour of tech time, a light and sound op, and general festival marketing. However, this is a self-producing festival and we can only provide the services above (we are of course happy to provide suggestions for fundraising, creative staff, and cheap or free rehearsal space). Winners will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to have a workshop of another longer play produced by Between Us Productions. Between Us Productions has also in the past produced mainstage productions by several of our Take Ten partiipants, both winners and otherwise.

If interested please email scripts and a short summary to betweenusproductions@gmail.com by Tuesday, October 31st at 11:59pm. 

There are no restrictions on subject matter.  The play must be approximately ten minutes long.

Between Us Productions strives to produce work about controversial issues by emerging artists.  We strive to contribute to the conversations that help our society grow and change. Started in 2010 by co-founders Samantha Lee Manas and Jasmine Brown, their premier production, Sweet Prince, was a tale of a young man struggling with depression and a less than ideal home life, based on Hamlet. Between Us Productions has produced 6 mainstage productions, 6 Take Ten Festivals, 6 workshops by winners of the Take Ten Festival, and several readings, improv nights, and variety shows.
