Play Submission Guidelines: EWP now accepting unsolicited manuscripts

Please be aware that we are an Asian American theatre, and most of the new works we produce revolve around Asian Pacific American (as opposed to Asian) characters and/or themes. We are looking for both comedy and drama, in English and financially viable (which includes considerations such as cast size, number of sets, etc.), and they don't necessarily have to be "issue-oriented", in that race can be an unspoken component in the work.

Writers are strongly encouraged to browse through our production history, which can be found here. Ask yourselves what kind of plays we've produced in the past, and who our audience is.

Manuscripts should be bound, preferably with brads and three-hole punch paper, with a title page containing all contact information for the author. Please also include cover letter and resume.

If you'd like to send a SASP (self-addressed stamped postcard) for confirmation of receipt, we'll send it back to you when we receive your materials.

If you'd like us to return your script, please send a manuscript-sized SASE with the appropriate postage. We typically keep all plays for our archives; please let us know if you would NOT like us to do so.

If you have Internet access and prefer to be notified via email, we can do that as well.

Please allow 3 - 9 months for consideration. All scripts are read by our Literary Committee and a single script is read by a minimum of 2 readers, sometimes more, before we make a recommendation.

Address your scripts to:
Jeff Liu, Literary Manager
East West Players
120 Judge John Aiso St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012.


If you live in Los Angeles and would like to volunteer for the EWP Literary Committee, please email jliu@eastwestplayers.org.
