2023 Play Opportunity

Onstage/Offstage (www.onstageoffstage.org) is looking for several 10-12 minute plays to produce and air on its podcast.

This year there are TWO OPPORTUNITIES:

1 - Our annual themed opportunity (see below); and,

2 - Inspired by Halloween, an opportunity for A SCARY PLAY THAT INCLUDES A GHOST.

****Submissions are welcome by email ONLY from 12:01AM MONDAY, JANUARY 2 to 11:59PM FRIDAY, JANUARY 20****

 

The 2023 opportunity theme is “EXPLORATION.” Three characters maximum. Plays must include a journey, and the protagonist must end up somewhere different than where they started and changed irrevocably. Spiritual/emotional growth could very well be a factor. Comedies and dramas welcome. **No monologues.**

The Halloween play must include a ghost who has dialogue. Could be funny. Could be terrifying.

 

Selected plays will be broadcast on WRFI 88.1 Ithaca Community Radio and podcasted at www.onstageoffstage.org and iTunes on a date TBD of Onstage/Offstage's choosing.

 

Send submissions to sapiogeorge@gmail.com. Email header must read as:
OSOS 2023 (EXPLORATION or HALLOWEEN) SUBMISSION / Playwright Name ​/ Play Name, e.g.:
OSOS 2023 EXPLORATION SUBMISSION / Shakespeare / Hamlet Goes to New Jersey . . . or
OSOS 2023 HALLOWEEN SUBMISSION / Shakespeare / Hamlet's Dad Has an Ear Infection

 

Selected plays will be cast, rehearsed, and recorded by Onstage/Offstage artists.

 

**Playwrights will be required to do a short interview to accompany their play.**

Please make sure your play is suitable for a reading, and remember that this will be aired on public radio!

Do not submit plays that require extensive reading of stage directions. The work should be overwhelmingly dialogue;

-Has your play been produced before? WE DON'T CARE. Send it.

-THREE (3) characters maximum;

-No excessive language. Not that we are against strong language in a work, but we have to bleep it for broadcast. It remains au naturel for the podcast;

-Plays must be 10-12 MINUTES in length;

-Plays MUST BE IN PDF FORMAT with playwright contact and cast/tech/set info on cover page, and pages numbered. (You'd be surprised. No, really, you would.)

-ONE play per playwright;

-By submitting your work, you agree that Onstage/Offstage may produce, air, and host your work on its website (onstageoffstage.org). You will have prominent credit.

We exuberantly encourage the voices of people of color and members of the LGBTQIA+ community to submit their work.
