Submissions are now open for the first annual Women's One Acts! festival with Eden Prairie Players. We are seeking unpublished works between 10-20 minutes that provide meaningful roles for women, written by female-identified Minnesota playwrights. A per-performance license fee is offered. There is opportunity to direct your own play if chosen, but we cannot offer housing for playwrights.
Eden Prairie Players is accepting submissions of unpublished one act plays for its Women’s One Act festival to be produced in Spring of 2018.
Please read the submission guidelines, then go to the One Acts Submission Form.

Q: Are works by international playwrights accepted?
A: No. At this time we are accepting Minnesota residents only.
Q: Is this replacing the Collection of One Acts you produce in the fall, that are open to all playwrights?
A: No. Submissions for the regular Collection of One Acts will open later this Fall.
Q: How are plays selected?
A: We provide access to each play for one or more authorized reviewers to read and rate as part of the selection process. Plays are narrowed down to a smaller subset of candidate plays. From this subset, plays are read at a public table reading and selected by our advisory committee.
Q: What format should I use for the play?
A: We only accept play files in PDF format.
Q: How can I convert my play to PDF?
A: There are several ways to convert your play to PDF:
Q. What about language in my play?
A: While we bill these productions as intended for mature audiences due to subject matter and language, we strongly consider what our audience's reaction to each piece will be.
Q. What if my play is published after I submit it?
A: If your play is published after submission, please notify us as soon as possible. Publication status will be taken into consideration during the selection process.
Q: How long has WOA! produced unpublished one-acts?
A: 2018 is the first year of the Women’s One Act festival! EPP has been producing unpublished works as part of our Collection of One Acts since 2010, and it was immediately successful. We hope to carry that enthusiasm forward each year by continuing to introduce our audience to fresh new works written by exciting playwrights. Thank you for your hard work, we are honored that you are considering Women’s One Act festival for your submission!
