Shakespeare in Paradise - Write and submit a short play for production in SiP 2019!!



Are you a playwright? Do you want to get your work produced?
 

Send us your short script for consideration!

Last year’s Short Tales was the surprise hit of the festival! Ten plays by ten authors caught the audience’s imagination and did what we wanted—inspired people to think about new ways of getting their ideas onstage.

So we’re going to do it again!!

Shakespeare in Paradise is once again looking for new playwrights and new plays for Short Tales 2019, a series of new short plays to premiere at our eleventh festival.

Plays should be new, original works.

Plays should be no longer than 8-12 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 8-12 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.

Submissions open now!!! Send your scripts as email attachments by clicking the button below.

Final Submission Date: May 17, 2019


These are the elements that will make us look twice at your submission:
  • Memorable characters in tough situations which change their lives forever
  • Actions that have consequences for those affected by them
  • Themes that have relevance for the 21st century Bahamas
