Poor Mouth Theatre Company invites all playwrights—experienced, novice, professional, young, juvenile, mature, male, female, and other—to submit short plays to be part of Poor Mouth's on-going series of short plays - PUTTIN' ON YOUR SHORTS.

We are interested in any and all subject matter (sketch comedy, farce, drama, tragedy or love story) of up to ten minutes in length. All plays must be original and should not have been performed before in this area. They should also be easy to mount on a small stage, requiring minimal set, props, costumes, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: Playwrights and/or their representatives are responsible for "talenting" their own shows. This includes casting, directing, rehearsing, providing props, etc. Poor Mouth Theatre will provide the performance space, publicity, basic set pieces (chairs, tables, boxes, etc), lighting, sound equipment, production staff, and of course the audience. 

Submissions should be sent by email only (Word or PDF file) to:

Please include your current telephone number and e-mail address for future contact.
