Athena Theatre submission guidelines

web site

Athena Theatre is seeking plays to read in our monthly play reading series. The purpose of this series is to develop new works which explore a new voice, expresses storytelling in an unconventional way, challenges both the artists as well as the audience to think outside of the box. The play may explore views on religion, race, gender, politics, social change, hunger, blindness or disability of any kind.

Please note we are only considering staged plays at this time with a cast of ten or less.

From the play reading series, a play will be picked to develop into a staged reading. The staged readings will be performed on a quarterly basis. Please check back to view our staged reading schedule.

When submitting please include all of the following:

-a brief cover letter stating how you think your play fits our mission statement as well as the how it relates to our past productions.

-a one page summary

-character breakdown.

We will contact you within one month if we are interested in doing a play reading of your play. The play reading series was developed to explore original work.

E-mail to: Patrick Varon (Literary Manager)OriginalPlay@athenatheatre.com

PLEASE NOTE: As Athena Theatre transitions to producing in Los Angeles as well as New York, we cannot review unsolicited play submissions.

If your play is solicited, please indicate whom referred you and let us know how your play relates to our season.

We are only accepting full length plays at this time. Please do not submit one acts, short plays or musicals. We are particularly interested in a new voice, a new kind of story telling, a style which is unconventional. Thank you.
