Garfield Center Seeks Scripts for Short Attention Span Theatre

March 26, 2016

It’s that time of year again! The Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre is embarking on the exciting annual adventure in theatre known as “Short Attention Span Theatre”!  (For those not in the know, that’s our annual 10-minute play festival!)  Performance dates are June 24-26, July 1-3, and July 8-10.

We are seeking scripts for 10-minute plays and 1-minute plays from local playwrights.

  • Please send your submissions to sastplays@garfieldcenter.org
  • You may submit up to three 10-minute plays and five 1-minute plays.
  • If possible, please send your scripts in PDF format.
  • Your play will fare better if it is well formatted.  Look for links on the Live Playwrights’ Society site for tips on formatting (www.liveplaywrightssociety.org).
  • Please include a cover sheet with your contact information (email, phone, mobile).
  • We anonymize submitted scripts before they are read by our panel of judges, so please refrain from putting your name on each page.
  • The deadline for submissions is Saturday, March 26, 2016.

Here is our process:  Submissions are anonymized and then read by our panel of judges.  Our panel of judges selects a number of submitted plays which are then offered to our group of directors.  Our directors select from this list (in addition to a list of published plays).  We will announce our final selections by May 15th.

Good luck & get to typing!
