Calling all scribes

Women in Theatre is looking for entries for the 2015 Kauai Shorts — its fifth biennial, 10-minute play festival. 

Submissions are due March 23. 

“So sharpen your pencils, buy some fresh midnight oil, rack your brains and send us your mini-magnum opus,” said Romey Curtis, the festival’s chair and director of Women in Theatre. 

The guidelines are simple: Playwrights may write about any subject that is suitable for a general audience. However, plays that have been previously or professionally produced are ineligible. Additionally, the cast should be small — no more than six actors — and keep the set simple, no water features, curving staircases or chandeliers.

About 20 plays (plus two alternates) will be chosen for production by the selection committee.

The entry deadline is March 23. No application fee for Hawaii residents, and a $20 fee per play for non-residents. All authors will be notified of WIT’s decisions by June 1.

To enter, visit and fill out the entry form by March 23. For questions, call Romey Curtis at 826-9755.
