The LIC One Act Festival is now accepting plays for its 3rd annual. The Secret Theatre seeks to promote new work and emerging playwrights through our annual One Act Festival. We also promote playwrights through publishing anthologies of the winning plays; all of the final plays including the festival winner are offered a non-exclusive publishing agreement we have currently published five volumes of short plays.
No fee to submit or produce.
• $200 Cash Prize for Best Play
• $100 Cash Prize for Best Director
• $50 Cash Prize for Best Actor
• $50 Cash Prize for Best Actress
• Each Play is guaranteed 4 performances
• The final selected plays are eligible for publishing in Top Secret Books’ The LIC One Act Festival Vol 3 on a non-exclusive basis.
• Plays must be between 10 – 20 minutes in length. Preference given to plays that have not been produced before.
• Playwrights are responsible for selecting director and cast. (We may be able to help you if you do not have a director but preference will be given to playwrights who can provide their own directors and actors.)
• Easy to produce. (If you have a play which for instance includes a swimming pool, a large amount of sets and props, or anything else too elaborate or is impossible to cast we may reject it.)
• Please submit plays in PDF or Word format only.
• We will divide selected plays into three programs which will play in an alternating order over two weeks.
Selected Playwrights will be informed July 27th.
Please email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
