Urban Stages (NYC) is looking for Local Submissions

web site

We at Urban Stages, accept plays year-round and from all over the world through our Emerging Playwright Award Submissions.

However, we would like to encourage more playwrights residing in the New York City (or playwrights who can easily commute to NYC) to submit full-length plays. We hold staged readings and workshops of the plays we pick and it is important to have the playwright present throughout this development process. All plays we pick for staged readings are considered for full productions.

Rules to submit:

All Plays must include a biography and/or author's history of the play, character breakdown, and brief description or synopsis of the play.

All Plays may have been developed elsewhere, but never produced in New York City. There is no limit to submission. Subject matter and character variations are open.****However, we pay special attention to plays focused on social, racial and/or cultural issues. *

All submissions must be sent via mail (ABSOLUTELY NO EMAILS!):
Urban Stages
555 Eighth Avenue
RM 1800
New York, NY 10018

Include a SASE (a small one for a response letter or a large one with appropriate postage if you would like us to return your play -- otherwise scripts will be recycled.)

There is no submission fee.

All scripts must be firmly bound. No changes or revisions accepted after submission. No double-sided pages.

It usually takes two to six months for us to read and process your script. We ask that you do not call or email our offices to inquire on the status of your play.
