Lourdes Drama Society
2015 One-Act Playwriting Competition

The Lourdes Drama Society is pleased to once again sponsor a one-act playwriting competition this year. Last year we received scripts from across the U.S. and Canada, with the winning plays receiving world premieres during our Festival of One Acts in the spring. This year we expect the competition to be even bigger and better!

The competition is open to all playwrights 18 years of age and older. Entries must be one-act stage plays with performance times of 8 to 15 minutes. Submissions are restricted to original dramatic works—no adaptations—that have not been previously published or produced outside of an academic environment. Scripts are read blind and will be judged on concept, dramatic action, characterization and dialogue. Lourdes University Drama Society will produce the winning plays during its Festival of One Acts 2016.  

The deadline for entries is a postmark of October 1, 2015.
