Odd Tales- Trust Edition


Cartage Theatre of Charlotte is seeking radio drama script submissions for our upcoming Spring 2018 Odd Tales live event, The Trust Edition. Original content or adaptations of stories in the public domain are welcome. Chosen scripts will be rehearsed and performed by actors with live sound effects in the late spring of 2019. Authors of selected scripts will receive two complimentary tickets to the event, bragging rights, and a $50 selection reward. Authors retain all rights to their work.


We are looking for scripts of all types and genres, from Family Friendly all the way to Parental Guidance Required.  If you are looking for further guidance or inspiration, we are looking for scripts that examine or grapple with the idea of TRUST.


Who is deserving of trust, who is not, and does that change, and when?

When is trust enough, and when is it not?

When is trust crucial, when is it irrelevant?

When is trust gained, when is it lost?


All scripts must have a title page with all contact information.  Scripts must be no less than 10 minutes and no more than 55 minutes in length. To repeat, all scripts should be between 10 minutes and 55 minutes in length. Figure a minute a page. All scripts should follow audio drama format. An example of proper audio drama format can be found here:

The scripts should be ready to produce, including direction for sound and music cues. If selected there will be room and time for revision and rewrites, however, scripts must be as ready to produce as possible. Submissions cannot include usage of copyrighted music.


Deadline for submission is April 3rd, 11:59pm eastern time. 


Submit scripts at, and please include "script submission" in the header.

Due to the number of script submissions, we will be unable to provide detailed feedback for your script unless it is chosen. Authors will be notified about script selections in late April.  

Submissions not selected for our Spring 2019 performance may be considered for future performances.
