Guidelines for writing a good short play:

Engage your audience quickly by getting to the conflict immediately.
Surprise the audience; don't rely on cliches.
Make the audience laugh or become emotional.
Create vivid characters. Give them names. Naming your characters "Man" and "Woman" usually means your characters are not fully developed.
Show, don't tell.
Be original.
Limit your play to 3-4 characters.
The situation should be compelling.
Communicate non-verbally.
Make use of the space and props.
Don't be afraid to be shocking.
