The Sundog Theatre is celebrating its 15th anniversary by launching its 2017 Scenes From The Staten Island Ferry play submission contest on December 1. All playwrights are welcome to submit an original, short one-act play incorporating the number “15.”
Additional guidelines include:
- Must be an original play not previously produced or published, with a signed note affirming that.
- Plays should be at least 15 minutes long (max 25) and have their setting on the Staten Island Ferry.
- Plays should be contemporary, involve 2-3 characters and require no special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props, and no special sound or lighting requirements.
- Avoid overt and unnecessary sexual/violence/language since we cater to a broad audience.
- No musicals or long monologues since plays are memorized by actors in a short time.
- As in life, humor is good.
- Submissions should be postmarked no later than December 31, 2016.
Winners will receive $100 and their plays will be performed in multiple dates throughout March 2017 in Staten Island.
