Theatre One calls for New 10 Minute Plays from MA-RI Playwrights


Starting Feb 1st through March 1st, Theatre One in Middleboro, MA calls for 10 Minute Contemporary New Plays from MA and RI playwrights. Theatre One’s goal, through the Slice of Life New Works Festival, supported in part by the Middleboro Cultural Council and the Lakeville Arts Council, is for playwrights to be heard and encouraged, remember “There is No Theatre without Playwrights,” notes Artistic Director Peg Saurman Holzemer. The winning playwright, voted on by the Audience, will receive Theatre One’s Richard Pacheco Playwrighting Award of $100. Richard was a friend, playwright, actor, director, artist, teacher and a onetime theatre critic for the Standard Times. The festival will be performed Saturday March 25th at 7:30pm and Sunday March 26th at 2 pm, at the Mitchell Memorial Club, 29 Elm St, Middleboro, MA. It’s been a hard couple of years for all of us and the news in general has been like a really bad, no-budget production. So, where it’s the year of the Rabbit playwrights, through your vision and talent, via the genre of light, dark, satirical comedy or drama, let us humans start hopping down a new trail, or not. We request one submission, no entrance fee, no monologues. Cast size 2 -6, age range 20s-70s. Some language permitted. The final date of submission, March 1, 2023. Include all contact information, along with a brief synopsis of the play and yourself. No hard copies. Print of all scripts must be submitted on PDF format or Word doc. Font size 14 and exactly 10 minutes in length. The plays selected, will be performed script in hand. Playwrights will be notified if their work is selected by March 6,2023 and if selected, are welcome to attend at no charge.

Submit your new ten minute-play, to pegholzemer@yahoo.com  Come join the fun with Theatre One, in bringing Live and New plays to your back yard.
