The Geneva Theatre Guild is now accepting submissions of original one-act play scripts with a running time of 30 minutes or less for the annual Playwrights Play Readings event. The deadline for submissions is February 12th. 

This year we hope to present our Play Readings live, in person and via livestream, at local venues. The weekend of April 24-26 has been chosen for performance dates (current COVID conditions permitting).  More information will be publicized closer to the event. 

All selected playwrights will be invited to participate in a talk-back session after each performance with the cast and director of each play, giving writers of all ages the chance to not only experience the actors' interpretations of their work but to receive audience feedback in real time.

Every play submitted will be given a blind review by our play selection committee, which will choose the works to be presented this season.  Playwrights will be notified of the decision on their play by March 20th.

The guidelines for all submissions are as follows:

1. A BLIND copy without any info identifying the author of the play should be submitted electronically in PDF format to the Geneva Theatre Guild’s season planning email address:

2. A SEPARATE TITLE PAGE (also in PDF format ) should include the title of the play, the playwright’s name, address, phone number, email address, and approximate running time of the play.

3. Include a brief synopsis of the plot, setting, and a list of characters before the first page of dialogue.

4. All pages must be numbered.

5. Limit - one play per author which cannot have been previously published or previously submitted to the Geneva Theatre Guild’s Playwrights Play Readings.

6. The number of submissions accepted will be cut off after the first 150 have been received. 

Auditions for Playwrights Play Readings are scheduled for March 28th and 29th at the Presbyterian Church in Geneva.  Further information about auditions will be released in early March.
