2018 saw Bendigo Theatre Company stage it’s third season of the highly successful play format known as TENx10.
TENx10 is a performance of ten plays, each 10 minutes in length. The plays must be original, so this is a great opportunity for writers of all levels of experience to have their work performed. In preparation for this, we are calling for playwrights to submit ten minute plays to be considered for the TENx10 season 2018. Submitted plays are de-identified and sent to an assessor who is responsible for selecting the final ten.
Year after year the calibre of these plays gets better and better. In 2017 year, 39 actors, 9 playwrights (one playwright, Kerry Turpie, had two plays selected for the performance) and 10 directors took part in the production which was staged over 5 performances in March.
There is a standard script format that demonstrates how plays should be laid out. Click here to view script the format guidelines.
NB: Writers may not direct their own play.
