Cradle Theatre New Works Reading Series

web site

Our New Works Reading Series is dedicated to producing dynamic, compelling staged readings of new plays and screenplays by up-and-coming young artists, giving new voices a chance to be heard.

The works we produce have never been seen before, and are inspired, either directly or in spirit, by works of classic drama.

Our next reading will be on Saturday, September 12 in New York City . Submissions are still open!

We are currently looking for short plays (between 10 and 75 pages) to workshop in a weeklong program before being presented in early September.

Length:
We are currently looking for short plays between 10 and 75 pages long. We embrace creativity, though, so if your play doesn’t quite meet those length qualifications but you feel like it should still be counted as a short play, just let us know in your application!

Subject Matter:
We have no official restrictions on subject matter, but we welcome you to think about how your work as a writer interacts with or responds to the rich traditions of dramatic literature, in any meaning you deem worthy of the term “Classic.”

Location and Availability:
If your play is selected, we would love for you to be able to come to New York City to work with our actors to workshop the text. If for any reason that is a problem for you, please indicate in your application–if we like your play, we’ll try to work something out!

Submission Deadline:
August 16. No exceptions.
If you would like to submit an unproduced new play, please fill out the form on the “Submit Your Play” page.

For more information, simply email info@thecradletheatre.org
