Theme: "It's Over!" DCFAC Calls For Submissions From Iowa Writers For Third Annual Summer Shorts
Iowa writers are invited to submit work for the Third Annual Davis County Players’ Short Play Festival, “Summer Shorts,” presented by the Davis County Fine Arts Council. The festival of short plays will take place on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3-4, 2012 at the Iowa Theatre in Bloomfield, Iowa.
Playwrights from anywhere in Iowa are eligible. Writers are asked to submit unpublished material by May 15, 2012. Several plays will be selected for stage production, with one “Best In Show” to receive the $100 grand prize.
There will also be $50 prizes to the best play written by a resident of Davis County and the best play written by a Davis County student aged 18 or younger
The theme of this year’s contest is “It's Over.” Plays should be in a standard play script format and be between 5-15 pages in length. They should be the author’s original material and not an adaptation. Comedy, tragedy, or somewhere in between – it doesn’t matter, but we are not looking for musicals.
The set will be minimal and the stage is small, so it is very unlikely that a play that requires an elaborate set will be selected for production. The play should have at least two but no more than five characters. And this year, the play should have something to do with “It's Over.”
Please be aware that plays that do not follow the guidelines will not be considered, nor will plays by authors with no direct connection to Iowa.
