Queens Theatre in the Park seeks plays

web site

Queens Theatre is the only performing arts center in the borough that actively seeks out and develops new works.  Through its two New Play Development programs—Immigrant Voices Project, which develops works that represent the rich cultural diversity of New York City, and Plays A Mother Would Love, which looks for mainstream musicals, comedies and dramas—Queens Theatre has hosted staged readings, workshops and full productions of more than 75 new plays, including Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo by Rajiv Joseph, which went to receive its Broadway premiere in 2011 in a production that starred Robin Williams.

The Immigrant Voices Project is a year-round program that provides emerging and established writers with an opportunity to develop new work that represents the ethnically diverse demographics of New York City through staged readings, workshops and showcase productions.

Plays A Mother Would Love seeks new, mainstream comedies, musicals and thrillers with small casts for readings, workshops and full productions.

At this time, we are only accepting submissions that fit squarely into the parameters of one of these two programs.

Submission procedure:
  •  Please do not send unsolicited scripts.
  •  Email a letter of inquiry, synopsis, cast breakdown, resume and production history to Rob Urbinati, Director of New Play Development.
  •  Include a statement that indicates for which of the two New Play Development Programs you think your play is suited.
  •  No children's shows or one acts, please.
  •  Production considerations: prefer cast limit of 8
  •  Response to letter of inquiry: 3 months
  •  Response to requested scripts: 6 months
