Original scripts sought for 2019 Ten Minute Play Festival

The Actors Theatre Playhouse of West Chesterfield, N.H., and Brattleboro, is accepting Ten Minute Play submissions for its Ten Minute Play Festival in June 2019.

The Playhouse is seeking 10-minute plays from the New England region only.

The goal of the festival is both to encourage the production of new works from regional writers while exposing ATP’s actors and directors to the techniques and practices of working with and producing new plays.

Writers are limited to two unpublished submissions. Ten-minute plays should play in one scene, have minimal scenic requirements, not exceed 10-12 pages in length, and have two to six characters.

If plays have been previously produced, they are welcome so long as there are no encumbrances on them.

The deadline for entry of a manuscript is Sept. 30. All scripts will be accepted only by email at A return email will confirm your delivery to us.

Up to 10 winners and alternates will be announced to all participants by early December.

ATP regrets that it cannot offer any financial prizes at this time. The winners will receive production of their play as part of their Ten-Minute Play Festival and multiple complimentary tickets offered should the authors be able to attend.
