Playellas are Descent’s series of tiny plays for your new writing quick fix. They are twelve-line gems of writing genius and we want you to write one for us. But how? Here’s how:

What are the rules?

  • A Playella can be about anything at all.
  • It can have as many characters as you like.
  • BUT it can only have twelve lines of dialogue.
  • AND it must be written for the stage.
  • The twelve-line rule does not include stage directions.
  • Brand spanking new creations only please.

So easy. Send us your Playella and if we love it, we will post it on our blog!

You can take a look at some of the wonderful Playellas we’ve had so far here.
