Festival of Dionysus: The One Act Play

Due Thursday, Oct. 30: A completed draft of your one-act play (5pts.)
Due Thursday, Nov. 7: Final gradable version ready to be staged. (15pts.)
Due Thursday, Nov. 14: Your group’s performance in our class competition. (5pts, with 3 EC
points for the group that wins, 5 for the playwright.)


Your one act play should be about ten pages, about 10 minutes in duration when performed. Your
script should be in standard play format. There are several acceptable formats out there. If you
want, use this one: http://www.indstate.edu/theater/mhspc_files/Sample%20Playwriting

Your script should be free of all errors in grammar and spelling. I will use the Winter One-Acts
rubric, below, to grade your play.
