Approved Plays & Publishers

Starting 2014-15 - Some plays listed have a long history of League approval and come from sources other than play publishers. Some plays may be self-published on the internet by the playwrights.

NOTE: Even though a play is published by one of the endorsed publishers, this does NOT mean that every play on these publishers' lists is "automatically approved" for entry in the UIL One-Act Play Contest. If the play you are considering does not appear on one of the approved lists which follow, then it must be submitted to the office of the State Drama Director for the play appraisal committee's approval prior to the December 21 deadline.

"Various Dramatizations" or from "Approved Publishers" does not mean that plays which are by nature dramatic monologues, duet acting scenes, reader’s theatre, musical theatre or which are predominantly narration, choral speaking or not interactive  may be used. Please check carefully.

 

An Approved List of Short Plays for Contest

 

Last Updated: August 01, 2012

The following plays are approved provided they comply fully with Section 1033 (c) (1) (H) Standards. Directors shall eliminate profane references to a deity and obscene language or scenes from the approved production. Directors shall revise or reject all material within approved plays which in any way fails to meet these requirements. The administration of the producing school is charged with the responsibility of assuring that the director complies with these requirements and that the play does not offend the moral standards of the community. When a script and production are examined and approved by the administration of the producing school, the production is eligible for presentation at any contest site. These plays must also meet all other requirements of the One-Act Play Contest Rules.

In addition to those listed, all other plays written by Chekhov, Ibsen, Molière, George Bernard Shaw, Eugene O'Neill, Sophocles, Euripides, Aeschylus (translations only), and Shakespeare (cuts from original text only) are approved. This blanket approval does not include any adaptations of these authors' works unless they appear on the Approved List as such.
