Whiskey Radio Hour seeks 10-minute plays

web site

Now in its fifth year, Chicago's Whiskey Radio Hour is a recurring live production of new radio plays, music, and lots of laughs. The hosts trade puns and banjo riffs as they present fresh short radio plays created by adventurous playwrights, directors, and actors. With original songs inspired by each radio play and live foley sound effects, each Whiskey Radio Hour is a knee-slappin’, all-analog evening of aural delights. We are seeking 10-minute radio plays for our next episode.

Kindly email whiskeyradiohour@gmail.com with your complete script (in either .doc or .pdf format) by Sunday, April 1st.

Only complete scripts will be considered.

Your play should be around ten minutes long (so read your play out loud before you submit!)

Your play can be in any genre you like, but try to engage the radio play format in some way.

Due to space constraints, up to four actors can perform in each radio play. Therefore, actors will play multiple roles if there are more than four characters in your piece.

Each writer can submit up to two radio plays per Radio Hour.

Each episode of the Whiskey Radio Hour is recorded, and then put on the internet for anyone to download free of charge. To check out past episodes, visit our bandcamp page.

If you’re interested in the correct format of a radio play, the BBC has a handy guide here.
