We are looking for short play submissions (10-15 minutes MAX).
Easy enough? Well, there's a catch. The audience will be blindfolded; therefore, your play will be read to an audience in total darkness. If your play does not take this into consideration, we will not accept your submission. Get creative, get wacky, and show us what you've got!
Please provide the following contact information in the body of your email: full name, address, and email.
The plays themselves should not contain any contact information. Any contact info should be in the body of the email—do not put your name on the script itself. Your script will not be considered if it contains your contact information.
The subject line for your submission should read as follows: PHNW Dark Submission
Preference will be given to scripts with fewer than five characters. All plays must be unpublished.
The deadline for submissions is August 31 at 11:59pm MST. We will cut off submissions once we've reached 200, so the sooner the better. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Please send scripts in PDF format to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All playwrights will receive two complimentary tickets to a performance of their choosing.
You will receive an email by September 15th letting you know whether or not your script has been chosen.
We look forward to reading your work.
We never post calls for submissions that require a submission fee. Learn more here.
