2017 Call for 10-Minute Plays

2017 Call for 10-Minute Plays

WE HAVE MET OUR SUBMISSION CAP! Thank you to all who submitted!

This Is Water Theatre is excited to announce a call for 10-minute play submissions for production in February 2017!

As part of our full season, we will be producing a 10-minute play festival that we are tentatively titling "Skinny Dipping with Our Clothes On," which will revolve around the themes of risk and vulnerability.

We are looking to fully produce 6-10 scripts, all of which will receive approximately 8 performances - this is not a staged reading. As part of our mission is to make sure that artists are paid for the work they do, we will pay a royalty of $10/script/performance to all selected authors.
