One script, multiple visions, one night only. And that script could be yours!
The March Madness Organizing Committee is now accepting script submissions for our 10th annual March Madness event. A good March Madness script is a bit unusual; here’s what we’ll be looking for.
- It’s short. The ideal runtime for a March Madness script is 10-15 minutes.
- It’s small. We’d like to see scripts with 2–4 characters.
- It’s open to interpretation. We want to give our teams maximum scope for creative decisions, and having as few constraints written into the script as possible helps that. Settings should be generic; characters should be ungendered (or open to gender shifts); stage directions should be omitted.
The author of the selected script will receive an honorarium and will be invited to join us at the event for a talk-back session.
We’re accepting scripts by email to the committee; submissions received by Monday, January 23rd will receive full consideration. You’re welcome to submit multiple scripts. If you have any questions about what we’re looking for or about the process, please reach out to us.
