Write and submit a play for production in SiP 2018

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

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.

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.

Submission deadline: May 18, 2018

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
