Geneva Theatre Guild is now accepting submissions for Playwrights Play Readings 2022! Please submit your original one-act play scripts with a running time of 30 minutes or less to [email protected] by February 12th! 2022 submission guidelines are as follows:

  • 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: [email protected]
  • 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.
  • Include a brief synopsis of the plot, setting, and a list of characters before the first page of dialogue.
  • All pages must be numbered.
  • Limit – one play per author which cannot have been previously published or previously submitted to the Geneva Theatre Guild’s Playwrights Play Readings.
  • The number of submissions accepted will be cut off after the first 150 have been received.

We are planning for a LIVE event, in-person and via livestream, at local venues on April 22-24, 2022, COVID conditions permitting. More information will be publicized closer to the event. As we do every year, we will invite all selected playwrights to 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 whether they have been selected after March 20th.
