Theatre Oxford’s annual 10-Minute Play Festival showcases new dramatic works in arts-loving Oxford Mississippi, a town beloved for its literary history. It all starts with the writing contest, which receives submissions from all over the world. Our submissions are read and rated anonymously by volunteer readers in two rounds, and the play selection committee chooses the grand, second, and third prize winners. The grand prize is $1,000 plus production at the festival, alongside 4 or 5 plays from our pool of contest finalists and plays we have solicited from local authors.
