Play Submissions for the 2021-22 Season

Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Center, a nonprofit community theater based in Plainfield, NJ, is seeking play submissions for our second short play festival. Dragonfly is dedicated to celebrating diversity and multiculturalism. We will, therefore, look for plays that meet that goal. Below are submission guidelines.



  • Plays should be from 10-30 minutes in length.

  • Plays should lend themselves to diverse casting.

  • Preference will be given to New Jersey playwrights.

  • Preference will be given to comedies or light dramas.

  • We are NOT looking for plays on Covid/pandemic themes.




  • Do NOT send your play. We will prescreen play synopses and request full scripts for those plays that we feel will best serve our company.

  • Your submission must include the following:

    • Title and author

    • Current town and state of residence

    • Length—number of pages and approximate running time

    • Character list and description

    • Set requirements

    • Full synopsis of one page or less

    • Production history (it is fine if the play has not been previously produced.)
