Firehouse Theatre Project 12th Annual Festival of New American Plays

web site

NOTE: Must have a letter of recommendation

Rules for Submission
  • Full length scripts only. 
  • Plays must not have been previously produced. Readings are acceptable if no admission was charged and actors read from the script. 
  • Submissions should be made in standard manuscript form and with no fancy binding. This means no discs, no e-mails. Please just use a binder clip to secure the script pages, no folders, no plastic covers, etc. All author information must be on a title page separate from the body of the manuscript and no reference to the author is permitted in the body of the script. 
  • Scripts must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a theater company or individual familiar with your work. Letters of recommendation do not need to be specific to the play submitted; they may be general recommendations of the playwrights work. All letters must be received with the script, not under separate cover. Scripts received without a letter will not be considered. 
  • Entries must be postmarked no later than September 1, 2013 but no earlier than January 1, 2013. 
  • Due to volume of mail, manuscripts cannot be returned. 
  • Send submissions to: 
Firehouse Theatre Project

Richmond, VA 23220 
  • Two winners receive staged readings and prizes of $1,000 and $500. In the case of a tie, each winner will receive $750. 
  • Winners will be announced March 1, 2014.
