NW10: Oh, Boise!
March 20 - March 29, 2020  

Pay-What-You-Will Preview March 19, 2020 

Submissions for the 2020 NW10 Festival are now closed.

The Northwest Ten Festival (NW10) returns for a twelfth consecutive year, continuing its mission to be the Pacific Northwest’s premiere ten-minute play festival. Selected submissions will be produced during the 2020 NW10 at Oregon Contemporary Theatre in Eugene, March 20 - March 29, 2020.

The 2020 show is titled NW10: Oh, Boise!, due to the addition of Idaho as an eligible state for submissions. “We’re delighted to carry on into our twelfth year running and to expand the festival to include playwrights from Idaho,” said NW10 Producer Connie Bennett. “Eugene area audiences have come to appreciate the tradition of whimsy, surprise, and delight inherent in the ten-minute play format. We are so grateful to all those who have participated in the past decade of NW10, including our co-producers at OCT, the talented actors, directors, designers and crew, the community at large, and—of course—the playwrights! Oh boy, Oh, Boise!

Script submissions for the Northwest Ten Festival of Ten-Minute Plays are accepted annually from September 1 through October 31, with auditions taking place in late January. All community members are welcome to audition for the NW10 Festival each year. With approximately 18-24 roles available each festival, this is a great opportunity to meet and work with lots of other local artists.

Interest in the ten-minute play form has also prompted the return of a half-day playwriting workshop, "Writing Your 10-Minute Play," team-taught by NW10 co-founders Connie Bennett and Paul Calandrino. The workshop will take place on Saturday, March 28th, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00pm at Oregon Contemporary Theatre.
