The Driftwood Players are seeking submissions from playwrights for the Edmonds theater group’s Festival of Shorts. Deadline to submit scrips is midnight April 1. so get those creative juices flowing.
DWP Festival of Shorts Schedule and Submission Guidelines:
-Submitted short plays must be less than 15 minutes long, centered on the theme “beginnings.”
-Only one submission per author will be accepted.
-Eight finalists will be chosen by a panel of five readers. Reading will be blind, so author name and other author information can only be on the cover page (which will not be distributed). Failure to comply will result in disqualification.
– Please use no more than five characters in your play.
– Be aware that selected plays will be staged with minimal sets, props, costumes, lights and sound.
– The eight selected plays will be assigned a director (at random), who will cast actors and present the work as he/she sees fit.
– The finalists have the chance to compete for an audience “peoples’ choice” award as well as a judges’ award.
Finalists will be announced May 1, and performances will be July 9 and 10 at 8 p.m. Submit by snail mail to
