Subversive Theatre is currently accepting unsolicited scripts

web site

Subversive Theatre is currently accepting unsolicited scripts for consideration for forth-coming staged readings and full productions.

 Of course, to be eligible, plays must be in keeping with Subversive Theatre's overall mission to produce plays of a political nature that serve to raise consciousness -- and hopefully encourage action -- on socially relevant issues.  Plays that address these issues in a particularly inventive and unconventional manner -- in terms of content and/or presentational style -- are especially welcome.

Plays can be submitted in one of the two following categories.


     Short plays -- less than 30 pages in length and less than 30 minutes in running time -- can be submitted to our sUBVERsIVE sHORTs Program.
     Works selected for this program will be performed in our annual sUBVERsIVE sHORTs Showcase which is held in the late Spring/early Summer of our Theatre's yearly season of plays.  This Showcase is a cabaret-style presentation of multiple vignettes performed in repertory.

The submission deadline for this year's competition is March 5, 2013.  

Selections will be announced no later than May 1st, 2013.  Playwrights are welcome to submit up to three scripts.

     Due to Subversive Theatre's limited resources, we are very rarely able to undertake full productions of previously unproduced works . . . but we will of course make exceptions for particularly strong material.

     Stage readings of new "subversive" works are also possible.
     To find out how to submit a full-length play to Subversive Theatre, contact our Overall Dramaturg Susan Forbes at submissions@subversivetheatre.org.
