The Davidson Community Players are Calling all Playwrights!

by | Jul 10, 2023

Submissions are now open for the 7th Annual Boos and Brews Ten-Minute Play Festival which will be held at the DCP Actor’s Lab Black box theatre in Cornelius on OCTOBER 26, 27, and 28. Plays will be accepted from NC, SC, VA, TN, and GA. Playwrights of all levels of experience are encouraged to submit.

 Here are the details:

  1. Your play is to be 10 minutes in length
  2. It should be formatted with 12pt. font with 1” margins, no more than 10 pages
  3. The theme is to be Halloween/Ghost/Spirit-oriented (comedy or drama)
  4. The play should require no more than five actors
  5. The set needs should be minimalistic (i.e. no refrigerators or heavy objects)
  6. Other production values should likewise be minimal (costumes, lighting, props, etc.)

Your submission should be BLIND. Include a “cover page” that contains the title, your name, email address, and phone number. All subsequent pages must have the title ONLY along with the page number.  Prior to giving your submission to the play selection committee, the cover page will be removed so that members will not know who wrote what. Playwrights whose work is chosen for performance will be notified in September. Playwrights may submit up to two plays for consideration. No calls, please.
