The plays submitted have to be 15 to 20 minutes in length and based on any of the following themes:
The deadline for submissions for plays is September 16 of this year but before you rush off to get that great idea out of your head and onto the laptop screen, please note that for the play to be eligible to be chosen by the Dóchas Drama Group, it must have a maximum of four characters only as well as needing only minimal staging and props.
All those entering are asked to send their entry as a a Word document to email@example.com
The author's name and contact details should be sent on a separate sheet of paper, together with the title of the play.
