UP Theater Company produces new and provocative work in the Northern Manhattan neighborhoods of Inwood and Washington Heights
We are currently seeking plays that specifically address the spate of Police killings and other brutalities against un-armed citizens of color.
We are also looking for plays about this issue from the point of view of police officers.
UP will perform readings and possibly productions of any worthy play on the subject. Plays of any length will be considered, but the best case scenario is we receive two or more short plays of conflicting view points to present on the same evening.
There is no timeline for this, and we reserve the right not to pursue any submissions if we feel the work is not to our standards.
Plays should be un-produced in the NYC area, have maximum cast of 8, simple set requirement, and be set in the present. Email questions and submissions to info@UpTheater.org - put US/THEM in the subject line. Or mail to

UPTheater Company is dedicated to presenting new and challenging works of drama and comedy relevant to our Uptown neighborhood. UP will not be afraid to be gritty, rambunctious, irreverent. UP will be for and by the community, taking advantage of the many theater artists who live among us; yet we also envision a theater that will be a destination for theatergoers from across the area, drawn by work of quality and passion.
