City Theatre Play Submissions Rules and Information

With the mission of developing and producing original short plays by established talents and promising new voices, City Theatre is looking for wonderful ten-minute plays for our annual Summer Shorts festival and other programming. Having produced hundreds of plays, we know what we want; scripts that are lively and timely, hilarious and thought-provoking, poignant and dangerous. We look for plays that span style and genre. We will consider bilingual scripts and ten-minute musicals. We have no restriction on the age range of the characters. In other words, for us to consider a script for production, we are seeking
compelling plays that rise above the ordinary.

Please note as of March, 2011, City Theatre and the Actors Theatre of Louisville will no longer co-sponsor the National Ten-Minute Play Contest, though each theatre will continue its commitment to finding and producing excellent ten-minute plays, and getting to know the work of writers around the country. Playwrights who wish to submit to Actors Theatre of Louisville’s National Ten-Minute Play Contest should visit Plays that were submitted in the last round of the Contest, for the November 1, 2010 deadline, will still be considered by both Actors Theatre of Louisville and City Theatre.

Please review the criteria thoroughly before sending your submission. Note: City Theatre does not produce any unsolicited full-length plays.

Plays will be accepted from August 15 – October 31, 2012. Scripts won’t be considered
sooner or later!

• Each playwright may submit only one script – send us your best!

• No scripts will be returned – save postage. No SASE required.

• Each script must be no more than ten pages long. We start counting when the actual play begins.
Please remember to submit scripts with page numbers.

• Previously submitted plays, children’s shows, and any unsolicited longer one-act or full-length
plays are not accepted and will not be returned.

• Each manuscript must be typed and individually bound or stapled. Title page must include name,
address, email address and phone number. We will not accept electronic submissions.

• The volume of scripts submitted prevents us from providing feedback or criticism.

• City Theatre will consider previously produced works, but there must be a production history
included with submission.
