Women's One Acts 2019 Submission Guidelines
Eden Prairie Players
Q: Are works by international playwrights accepted?
Q: Is this replacing the Collection of One Acts you produce in the fall, that is open to all playwrights?
A: No. Submissions for the regular Collection of One Acts will open this Fall.
Q: How are plays selected?
A: We provide access to each play for one or more authorized reviewers to read and rate as part of the selection process. Plays are narrowed down to a smaller subset of candidate plays. From this subset, plays are read at a public table reading and selected by our advisory committee.
Q: What format should I use for the play?
A: We only accept play files in PDF format.
Q: How can I convert my play to PDF?
A: There are several ways to convert your play to PDF:
Q. What about language in my play?
A: While we bill these productions as intended for mature audiences due to subject matter and language, we strongly consider what our audience's reaction to each piece will be.
Q. What if my play is published after I submit it?
A: If your play is published after submission, please notify us as soon as possible. Publication status will be taken into consideration during the selection process.
Q: How long has WOA! produced unpublished one-acts?
A: The Women’s One Act festival premiered in 2018. EPP has been producing unpublished works as part of our Collection of One Acts since 2010, and it was immediately successful. We hope to carry that enthusiasm forward each year by continuing to introduce our audience to fresh new works written by exciting playwrights. Thank you for your hard work, we are honored that you are considering Women’s One Act festival for your submission!
Plays must be submitted as a PDF file. Plays may be submitted by the playwright only. Each playwright is allowed to submit 3 plays. If a play was written by more than one person, be sure this is reflected in the Credited playwrights field.
Submitted plays must be at most 30 minutes in length.
Submissions will close when a maximum number of submissions is reached.
In the selection process, the play will be made available through TheaterForms to reviewers authorized by Eden Prairie Players. By submitting the play, the playwright gives permission for this usage. The playwright must be free to give this permission and to accept licensing terms offered by Eden Prairie Players if the play is selected, for any submitted play. (If a play is published after being submitted, and it is selected for Women's One Acts 2019, Eden Prairie Players will have the choice of accepting the publisher's licensing terms or choosing an alternate submission.)
