We are soliciting 10-minute scripts for the SPRING 2021 NC RADIO PLAY FESTIVAL, a collaborative audio play festival produced by the Cary Playwrights’ Forum and the Greensboro Playwrights’ Forum. From the submitted audio plays, a select group will be fully-produced on the CPF Radio Hour podcast site. The submission window is open until 11:59:59 PM on March 21st, 2021.
In keeping with the season, our theme this time around is “rebirth/renewal”. Submitted audio plays can be in any genre, but should definitely take advantage of the audio-only format.
Plays will be premiered May 8-29.

We had a successful interaction with Tiny Engine Theatre awhile back. Our playwrights will provide such a professional troupe with scenes that have already been through revisions after cold readings. The group will pick scenes that they can cast and would be fun to read; then they’ll share a read-through with us at our regular monthly meeting. The company will share their impressions about the characters and the story; Tiny Engine gave us a delightfully different experience than regular CPF meetings. Interested? Send your revised scripts to email@example.com. In your submission email, include your name, email address, copy of script (pdf), synopsis of character descriptions, and an affirmation if you’ve revised the script since a previous CPF read-through. If you are interested in a particular scene from a larger work to be read, please include any additional information (e.g., earlier pages) that the troupe should know.
