-Plays should be at least 15 minutes long (max 25) and have their setting on the Staten Island Ferry.
-Plays should be contemporary, involve 2-3 characters and require no special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props, and no special sound or lighting requirements.
-Avoid overt and unnecessary sexual/violence/language since we cater to a broad audience.
