Calling all playwrights… we are now taking submissions
for our next short play event…
A BAR STOOL
Submissions are now being sought for our next “Views from…” short play event.
This year – the fourth in this series – we have chosen the setting to be “Views from a Bar Stool”.
Once again we are asking you to write a short play (approx. 10 minutes) which, this time out, is set in a bar.
We are looking for plays with strong, relatable characters and plots that are character-driven.
In his book, ‘A More Perfect Ten’,author Gary Garrison says that “..the ten minute play should be a self-contained story with compelling characters that advances a conflict and pushes the dramatic tension towards some sort of resolution…”. Compelling characters are those who have “…needs, wants and desires in the situation you create for them.”
The plays can be comedic, dramatic, farcical or tragic. In fact, we always try to have a variety of genres in the final 8-10 plays to be staged.
Please note the following important staging requirements…
The important date!!… Submission deadline is Thursday 1st March, 2018.
As this event is primarily a fund-raising event for the Cork Arts Theatre, we are not in a position to pay performance royalties to playwrights.
Plays should be submitted by email as either Word documents or PDFs to: james@
We look forward to receiving and reading your plays!
