Shakespeare in Paradise - Deadline approaching for Short Tales 2019!!

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

Send us your short script for consideration!

We're still accepting scripts ...

but the window is closing!

Submit your work for consideration!
Your script will be read blind by a panel of judges. The best 10 will be produced as part of Short Tales 2019.

Successful plays will also be published as part of the Short Tales 2019 anthology. 

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! Of course, you can have more than 3 characters if you write a play in which actors play more than one role—and we will always make exceptions in exceptional cases.
Submissions open now!!!
Send your scripts as email attachments by clicking the button below.
Submit your script!!
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

Final Submission Date:
May 17, 2019
