Just Acts Play Festival 2015:
Examining Power

Just Acts Play Festival is an annual event aimed at exploring different areas of daily life and examining how people cope with disruption and conflict. Each year a topic is chosen and writers are invited to submit plays to be included in the festival.

The topic for 2015 will be Examining Power.


-Deadline for play submission is September 15/2014
-The Festival performance dates are: February 9-15/2015
-Plays must be 25 minutes or less and have a maximum of 4 to 5 characters
-Scripts must be original and unproduced
-Sets must be kept simple
-Plays will be chosen to offer as much variety as possible
-A committee will decide on the plays and the running order
-All plays will be performed every night
-Once the plays have been chosen the playwright will have a chance meet with a group of directors to choose the best director for their show or direct it themselves. If none of the potential directors work then the playwright is in charge of finding their own director.
-Directors will be responsible for finding their own cast and production crew

This is an opportunity for budding writers, actors and directors to be involved in a wonderful project. So if you are interested in submitting a play let us know.
