10-Minute Play Festival - at the Carriage House!

We are now accepting submissions for the 11th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival!

This competition is for 10-minute plays only; it is open to any playwright. There is NO submission fee, NO production fee. The judges will be members of the Studio Players theatre community: board members, directors, and patrons. The rules are simple and are as follows:

1. Any playwright may enter; please submit only ONE play per playwright. If a playwright submits more than one script, only the first one received will be considered and the others will be eliminated.

2. The play must be a 10-minute play (meaning it will be approximately 10 pages long (dialogue). If it’s a monologue/one-person piece, it should come in under 10 pages).

3. All plays should be emailed, with a separate cover page containing the following information: play's title, author's name, email address, mailing address and phone number. The play itself should only have the title and a brief synopsis; no identifying information should be contained in or on the 10-page script.

4. To be considered, each script must be received by February 12, 2024.

5. The contest is open to the first 300 entries received.

6. Winning entrants agree to a full production of their scripts and video recording and presentation of their scripts.

That's it! The top 7 scripts (as determined by the judges) will be performed by active members of the Bluegrass theatre community. Each play will be a fully realized production; each performance will contain all the winning scripts. The 7 selected playwrights will each receive $250 in prize money.

The script selection process is anonymous and therefore we won't be posting notifications during the deliberations. We will announce the 15 finalists and 7 winners after the selection process is complete.

All entries should be sent to: with "10-min Play Fest" in the subject line.
