Theatre Guild seeks one-act plays

The Geneva Theatre Guild is now seeking original one-act plays for the eighth annual Playwrights Playreadings program.

New playwrights are invited to have their plays presented in a staged-dramatic reading by local actors.

All submitted plays are read and rated, using established criteria, by several initial reading committees. The plays that rate highest are then read aloud and discussed by another group, who select the plays to be performed.

Members of the committees do not know the identities of the playwrights until after final decisions are made. The Guild receives more than 30 plays for consideration each year.

Script guidelines are available on the GTG web site at

Scripts should be sent to the Geneva Theatre Guild, Playwrights Playreadings, Box 424, Geneva 14456. Submissions must be postmarked no later than Monday, Dec. 5.

Playwrights Playreadings VIII will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 9, at the Geneva Free Library.
