Submit your play for NEWvember 2013

web site

  • submitted plays should be previously unproduced (we will consider plays that have had readings before but are still in development)
  • plays should not have been previously submitted to the NEWvember Festival
  • plays should have a cast size of 2-8
  • plays should have a running time of 30-120 minutes
  • we will only accept one submission per writer
  • we ask that the writers of the chosen plays attend the reading of their play towards its further development and to be present for a post-reading Q&A with the audience. We will provide $50 towards travel (the equivalent of a return Amtrak trip from NYC to Rhinecliff) as well as local accommodation in Tivoli for those who live 50+ miles away.
  • there is no fee for submissions
  • while we are open to all styles and subjects, our companies do have a preference for narrative and character driven stories
  • PROCESS OF SUBMISSION: In submitting your play via the online form, please include:
  • the play as a PDF, with no personal identifiers (i.e. your name, email, etc.) just the title (to aid our blind reading process)
  • separate title page as a PDF, including the name of author
  • a 3-line synopsis of the play
  • a bio of the writer
Entries not submitted in the correct format will not be considered.

SUBMISSION DATES: Submissions will be accepted from now until Sunday, June 30, 2013, midnight EST 2013. Please note that these dates will be applied strictly and any submissions made outside these dates will not be considered. The six invited plays will be announced in October.

CASTING: Please note - the chosen plays will be read by an ensemble of actors, each performing roles in multiple plays in the festival. While we will endeavor to provide the best match of cast for each play that is read, in terms of characters' listed ages/ethnicities, we also need to form an ensemble to best cover the entire range of the festival's program. We appreciate our playwrights' understanding of our ensemble-based casting.
