Chestertown Tea Party Festival Announces Revolutionary Theatre Playwright Competition


The Live Playwrights’ Society, in association with the Chestertown Tea Party Programming Committee, is pleased to announce a call for scripts to be considered for inclusion in future Chestertown Tea Party Festivals!

Playwrights should focus on creating plays with some connection to Colonial-era Chestertown. Your play does not need to be directly related to the Tea Party. It is suggested that your play run between 10 to 30 minutes. For logistical reasons, plays with small casts (5 or fewer people) are preferred. Playwrights may only submit one play, so choose your best!

Plays must be submitted via email to by March 25. The play selection panel will make their decision by April 15. If a play is selected for the Tea Party Festival, it will be produced Tea Party weekend.   Performances will be scheduled on Saturday.

Multiple plays may be selected.
