    1. I have a play for 2 to 3 actors and it is 15 min long. The third actor is not indispensable, he is a waiter and doesn’t have to talk, almost an extra. Please tell me if I can send my play and be kind enough to reply to my firs inquiry please.

      1. Hi Claudette, you need to contact the organisers directly with any questions about opportunities. We’re just posting this to share the information, so we don’t have the answers to these questions. If you find an email for the organisation that’s probably the best bet.
