MAGNET THEATER’S VERY OWN 10-MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL

If “write more” was your New Year’s Resolution — you’re in luck! We are looking for five original comedic plays to produce for our 10-Minute Play Festival, and submissions are now OPEN! Instructions and submission guidelines below.

Are you a sketch writer looking to try something new? A playwright looking for more exposure? A random internet user who stumbled across this page? Anyone and everyone is encouraged to submit. Please send us your best 10-minute play (seriously, no more than 10 minutes) and stay tuned for auditions at the end of February, as well as Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival on March 19th and 26th!

 

HOW TO SUBMIT

  • Please include the following information in the body of the email (and keep answers short!): Name; What comedy theater you are associated with (if any); Whether you have an sketch or playwriting experience (it’s fine if the answer is no!); Why you wanted to be a part of Magnet Theater’s Very Own 10-Minute Play Festival.

  • Attach your play to the email as a PDF. This is important. We won’t read any other format.

 

Submission Guidelines/FAQs

  • Only one submission per person. Send us your best work!

  • The plays really do need to be under 10 minutes. That means no more than 11 pages, not including the cover page. We will not read past the 11th page.

  • We are looking for NEW plays! Please don’t send anything that has already been produced.

  • All submissions must be in by February 19th, 10:00 pm EST. Submissions will not be accepted or considered after this time.

  • Notifications of selection will go out a few days after submissions close.

  • All authors agree to permit the Magnet Theater to produce their submitted play if the theater should wish to do so. Authors retain copyright and full ownership of their plays.

  • Diversity applicants strongly encouraged to submit!
