Send us your short script for consideration!


Shakespeare in Paradise is looking for new playwrights and new plays for Short Tales, a series of new short plays to premiere at our tenth festival.

The response to our call for short scripts has been very positive. So far, we've had submissions not only from The Bahamas but also from abroad. We're looking for up to

Plays should be no longer than 10-15 minutes in length. If you're using standard playscript format, this will give a rough running time of a minute a page, which means that your scripts should be between 10-15 pages long.

Casts should involve no more than 3 actors. One-person plays are welcome! And of course, you can have more than 3 characters if you write a play in which actors play more than one role.

Send your scripts as email attachments by clicking the button below.

  • Memorable characters in tough situations which change their lives forever
  • Actions that have consequences for those affected by them
