To submit a play



This year we hope to feature the work of one playwright who will write for an ensemble cast: a collection of short companion pieces ideally for a cast of 2-4 actors who will double roles.  Subject matter is limited only to relevance to any holiday or winter theme.  No limitation on genre.  We are offering a commission of $200.  Submissions are due by May 1st and should include a pitch or summary of your idea and a writing sample consisting of a short play or 10-20 pages of a full-length work.  Submissions due by May 1, 2014.

Mail hard copies to:

Jeremiah Munsey, Literary Manager

If you think you have a play that suits our mission and our mainstage season, please email our Literary Manager a query that includes where you are in the process of writing it and a dialogue sample.  Since we are a company that mounts workshop productions, we prefer plays that are in their early stages of development or that have not been widely produced.  If your play has had a full production, but you would like an opportunity to do substantial re-writes, you can let us know that as well.
