Whidbey Island Center for the Arts is seeking submissions for its upcoming one act play festival.

One Act Northwest is the first event of its kind for the non-profit community arts center. 

The festival will feature Peter Shaffer’s one-act dark comedy, directed by Tristan A.B. Steel, and at least four additional one-act plays.

Playwrights and directors are encouraged to submit their one-act plays for consideration. The deadline to submit is Feb. 16.

All submissions must include a completed registration form and $25 non-refundable registration fee. The performing group will be responsible for all royalty payments for works written by other playwrights. The group must also produce a letter confirming permission from the publisher or playwright to use said works, according to the WICA website.

All plays must be one act in length and be between 10-60 minutes. No excerpts will be permitted. Each group will also be responsible for supplying its own light, sound and stage management technicians. WICA will offer training to technicians if necessary. Each show must be set up in under 10 minutes and struck in five. Any original plays should include information on any prior performances if applicable.

Plays will be selected based upon artistic merit, technical and casting requirements, length, originality and adherence to submission rules, according to the WICA website. There will be awards and prizes given for outstanding work.

The registration form and more information are available at wicaonline.org. Winning plays will be announced on Feb. 20. The festival will run from April 10-19.
