Submit A Play

Guidelines for PLAY Submissions

What are the Writers’ Guidelines?


The Grief Dialogues submissions require authenticity. Types of submissions include monologue (1 to 5 minutes) or a short play (10 minutes or less) and deal with dying, death and/or grief. Review our About page for our mission and vision.   We accept previously produced work.  Please include in your submission if you are a current member of the Dramatist Guild.

How can the community and/or producing theatre further benefit from a production of the play?

Each community/theatre has the opportunity to submit monologues and plays from local contributors and writers. Our Advisory Council will judge those submissions and endeavor to select one play in each community to add to the local production of The Grief Dialogues. We will consider each added play for the following year’s updated version of The Grief Dialogues.

So cool! In 1978 I attended a Halloween party @Disneyland. A rich friend bought out the park for a night close to Halloween & threw an amazing party. 200 of us celebrated life (& death!) & being ourselves. Many of the guests used it as an opportunity to bust out of the closet!
