Scripts being accepted for Future Ten

| Monday, July 2, 2007

Thank You Felix and the alternative art space Future Tenant are accepting scripts for the fourth installment of Future Ten, the annual 10-minute play festival.

Plays will be performed Nov. 1-9 in two five-play programs of one week each at Future Tenant's new, as-yet-to-be-determined performance space along Penn Avenue, Downtown.

Eligible plays should not have been previously produced and should be approximately 10 pages in length, have a cast of two to 10, a set limited to chairs and table, few or no props or costume changes and simple lighting cues.

Writers may submit as many as two scripts; however, no more than one play per writer has the possibility of being selected for production. Playwrights must submit four copies of the manuscript so that it may be distributed to the judges.

Manuscripts must be typed, stapled once in the upper left-hand corner and include a cover page containing title, name, phone number and e-mail address.

To ensure an anonymous review process, the playwright's name and contact information should not appear on the actual script. Scripts will not be returned.

A panel of judges will choose the 10 plays to be produced. Selected playwrights will be notified by mid-September. Scripts should be sent to Brad Stephenson, Future 10 Play Submissions, 1609 Chislett Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.

Plays must be received no later than Aug. 10.

To receive complete submission guidelines send an e-mail request to .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
