Summer Shortcuts VIII

web site

The Open Eye Theater in Margaretville will accept 10-minute play submissions from May 21 to June 3, to be considered for production in “Summer Shortcuts VIII.”

Eight plays will be selected for two weekends of performances, Thursdays through Sundays from Aug. 16 to 26. All performances will take place at 960 Main St. in Margaretville, New York.

Family-friendly comedies and dramas, no more than 10 minutes in length on any subject or theme, and of any style or genre are welcome, according to a media release. The Open Eye is a “black box-type” theater seating 75. The company is especially interested in plays by Catskill Mountains and New York state playwrights, and in plays with good roles for senior adults and young teens.

Each playwright may submit up to two 10-minute plays, formatted in Word, ODT or PDF, and emailed to openeye@catskill.net with the subject line: Summer Shortcuts VIII.

The playwright’s name and all contact information, including mailing address, phone number and email address must appear on the title page. Hard copy submissions will not be accepted.

Authors of selected plays will be notified by late July. Each playwright whose play is produced will be encouraged to attend rehearsals and performances, and will receive a token fee of $40 and a copy of the printed program.

Play submissions will be accepted only from May 21 to June 3.
