10 Minute Plays

At the regional level, we accept submissions for student-written Ten Minute plays. Each student playright may submit no more than TWO ten minute plays.

According to KCACTF guidelines, a ten-minute play is ten pages or fewer (in 12 point typeface, not including character information or title page.)

Please note that the maximum limit for this category is ten pages. Please do NOT send us any more than ten pages on the assumption that the run time will be under ten minutes.

Up to SIX ten minute plays will be chosen as finalists by readers outside the region, and will be given rehearsed readings at the Region IV Festival. From these six, TWO finalists will be chosen for the national ten minute play festival at the Kennedy Center, and the playwrights will be asked to submit their scripts to the Kennedy Center for consideration.

Submissions are due by November 1
