Playwright Competition

Crafton Hills College is seeking submissions for the second annual New Works Festival themed, Never Tell Me the Odds. Playwrights are encouraged to submit 10-minute or one-act plays featuring underdogs, uphill battles, the struggle to find a place in the world or similar themes.
There will be two judged divisions: collegiate and professional, each with first, second and third prizes awarded.
The entry fee is $10 per submission, and there is no limit on the number of submissions. Ten-minute play scripts should be 6-10 pages in length; longer one-act scripts should be 16-22 pages and not exceed that number.
Submissions should be submitted online at by March 7 with performances May 6-9. Interested playwrights may choose to participate in a playwright discussion session on one of the evenings when their play is performed. You do not need to be a student at the College to submit a play. Crafton Hills College is solely responsible for the casting and production of all accepted works. For additional information, contact CHC Theatre Professor Paul Jacques.
