August Wilson New Play Initiative Congo Square Theatre Company Submission Guidelines

web site

Congo Square Theatre Company is an ensemble dedicated to producing definitive and transformative theatre spawned from the African Diaspora as well as from other world cultures. Congo Square Theatre Company seeks to establish itself as an institution of multicultural theatre.

We are interested in full-length plays, translations, adaptations, musicals and performance art. We will consider productions of previously produced plays.

We do not accept unsolicited scripts for consideration for our seasons. Plays maybe submitted through a literary agent or accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a theater professional (i.e. an artistic director or literary manager at a professional theater). If neither applies, write a letter of inquiry including a brief synopsis, cast list, relevant production history, and 10-15 pages of sample dialogue. The company may then request a complete script.

​Send submissions to:

Attn: Daniel Bryant

Please send all submissions June 1 – August 1.

No email or fax submissions accepted. Please include a SASE if you would like your materials returned.
