Calling All Playwrights! Submit Your One-Act Play For Our Room Series – “In The Garage”

Studio C Artists is announcing the continuation of its One Act Room Series as part of this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival.  Each show in the series has revolved around a particular room in a house, building, etc.  For 2016, we are pleased to present “In The Garage”.  With today’s announcement, we are also putting out the call for writers’ submissions for this show in the Series, which is set to open June 10th and run through the end of July.

In this next collection of original works, Studio C Artists will produce up to ten one-acts written, directed, and performed around a common setting (to make a cohesive show) – this time it’s a GARAGE. Everyone will eventually have the chance to participate, but right now we’re putting out a call for writers. (And not to worry – professional writers are encouraged to participate, but prior experience as a writer is not necessary.)

Here’s the scoop…

If you wish to submit, please send in a completed One Act play no more than 12 minutes in length by the deadline below (PDF format is preferred). The scenarios should involve anything that could take place in a garage (in any type of structure), and be sure to make the room integral to the plot (in other words, plays that could be set anywhere, and are just placed in a garage, are less likely to be chosen). Please remember to keep things simple, as we are limited in the size of our stage. No more than 2-4 characters per piece (focus on ages 20-35) – and props and other elements are kept to a bare minimum. The story is key. They can be either comedies or dramas, your choice.

REGISTER HERE – Please click here to register to make a submission (this will allow us to know how many plays to expect, and plan accordingly).

In short:

  • 8-10 plays will be chosen.
  • Please provide 1 completed One Act play, 12 minutes in length.
  • All works should be original – not having been produced at another theater in Los Angeles before.
  • Submissions are due no later than Friday, March 11th @ 5PM PST. (You can send them in earlier if you have it ready.)
  • Include a logline, a synopsis, and casting (character) breakdowns with your submission.
  • Email you submission to

Full details are contained in the attached documents. PLEASE BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE WRITERS’ GUIDELINES AND READ ALL CONTENTS. Submission that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be considered for this production.

Plays will be chosen by committee for this Series based upon the originality of their scenarios, along with the competency of the writing.  The best way to ensure your play is chosen is to submit a well-written piece, which plays in a bare space, with no props, no more than 4 characters, and roles which require actors in their 20’s-early-30’s.

All writers will retain the copyrights to their play, but will receive no compensation other than the production of their play. Feel free to pass along this information to anyone you think might be interested – and good luck!
