Edd had a great idea. There is a playwriting opportunity, and they are looking for one-page plays. It's a real challenge, and there has been a lot of discussion on the board as to their worth...I look at them as a writing exercise. If you get paid, great. Below is the opp...they don't pay, they do your play. How much could you get for a minute anyway. So...let's all write one-minute plays, and post them here for comments.
Then we can all submit to the one-page festival, and see if any get in. A little competition is good, isn't it?
I'll post one of mine that will be produced in the fall, for those who've never read one.
Think about one arc...and try not to end in a drum rift...that usually signals a skit.
2006 - 2007 Season
Modeled after an ongoing cultural event in Washington D.C., Artomatic 419 in September, 2006 is the first of it's kind outside of the District of Columbia! Artists of all disciplines will gather from all over Toledo and NW Ohio to celebrate the arts. Harvest Theatre of Toledo is proud to be a member of this esteemed group of artists!
We will be represented by a Festival of One Page Plays.
Criteria for One Page Play submissions:
Plays must be no longer than one page in length, double-spaced, on any topic of the author's choosing. While monologues will be considered, preference will be given to plays with more than one character. 4 characters maximum per play. Authors may submit as many plays as they would like. A committee of Harvest Theatre play-readers will choose
the plays to be performed. Compensation is awarded by way of
performance in the Festival. Deadline for submission is July 21st. Any questions? Please call (419) 902-0608

According to Edd: "Bill Quinlan, the Producing Director at the Harvest Theatre is very nice and responds quickly to emailed submissions confirming and thanking. He'll need many 1-pagers for the festival which really opens the chances for our members getting accepted. It would be wonderful to see how many of us get our scripts accepted. Since multiple submissions are allowed, many I suspect."
