Artist Call: Showoff Playwriting Festival in San Juan Capistrano

Showoff Playwriting Festival


Deadline: 10-15-2011
Capistrano Center for the Performing Arts
San Juan Capistrano


This is a 10-minute playwriting festival. All plays must be performed in approximately 10 minutes.


The work must have a beginning that grabs your attention, a middle with some meat and character development, and an ending that makes sense. It can surprise you, shock you, make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, but it must have an ending.


Everything else! Is the dialog natural for the characters created? Are the characters ones that an audience can hate, love, believe … is there some emotion touched? Is it something that an audience will remember? Something to tell someone else about? In short, is it a good story!
