As I’m preparing my submission to Theatre Three, I’m thinking about mistakes I have made when submitting plays. I haven’t done anything really embarrassing, but…
I live in the United States. One time I submitted a play to a theater in Canada. I put a self-addressed stamped postcard in the envelope, as I always do, so they could easily let me know they’d received my play.
Then I got a really nice e-mail from the theater, thanking me for my postcard, but saying that American stamps wouldn’t work in Canada! Duh.
I was especially embarrassed because I bet Americans often don’t think about things like that.
Have you made any embarrassing mistakes when submitting a play?
