Submissions are now being accepted for the Shortened Attention Span Horror Festival, which will present many scary one-act plays over three weekends this fall.
The fall event will present between 15 and 20 plays running five to 30 minutes each. Each week the audience will select a favorite, and the three winning plays will be staged in the 199-seat Players Theatre on Halloween.
In June, the Players Theatre produced the first Shortened Attention Span Festival, presenting 20 plays, each under 20 minutes, by 18 different authors during the four-week event.
Plays must be no more than 30 pages with either a horror or Halloween theme. There is a $10 submission fee. Authors of plays accepted for presentation will be notified by August 18. Submit by Aug. 11 to:
