Mendocino Theatre Company’s One-Minute Radio Theatre is a project for the community and we want all voices to be heard!   Plays can be in English or Spanish. There’s NO fee for submission, there is no cash award if your play is chosen; all our actors and directors give their time free of charge. 

Please submit your one-minute play* (app. 150-170 words, for 1-3 actors) in the body of an email (no attachments, please) to with the subject MTC One-Minute Play: [Title of your play]. Include your full name, contact information, and a brief, 50-word bio. You may submit as many one-minute plays as you wish, but only one submission per email, please. 

*NB: Play may not contain the “seven dirty words“, which are prohibited by the FCC. Play must be totally original and the author’s own work.
