Call for Playwrights: Suburban Holidays XI

Literary Arts
Organization Quannapowitt Players, Inc.
Deadline July 31, 2022

QP is seeking new plays for Suburban Holidays XI for 2022, our popular annual holiday themed play festival and fundraiser. We are proud to be presenting our eleventh year of holiday shows! Play submissions should be between ten and twenty minutes in length and focus on a holiday. All holidays are welcome! In the past we have produced plays centered on Arbor Day, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Day, Halloween, Mother’s Day, Kwanza, Hanukkah, and Christmas, just to list a few! We appreciate large casts (within reason), and also welcome smaller shows. Plays featuring children are also welcome. Also, please keep in mind that we do try to keep the festival family friendly, so plays with excessive profanity are discouraged.

Each year, we select five or six shows from the submissions. All submissions are also kept on record and consulted for future years as well. Selected playwrights will receive a  $100 stipend and their play will be produced as part of Suburban Holidays Eleven. Suburban Holidays productions are full productions that include lights, sound, and costumes, but minimal set.
