A long-distance dramaturgy program for new plays in development. Works must be in the first draft stage or later. Each script will be paired with a professional dramaturge, who will work with the playwright via email and/or Skype through the completion of a further two drafts of their work.

All playwrights, regardless of experience or province/country of residence, are eligible to apply. Up to three scripts will be chosen for development in 2014.

Please note that She Said Yes! is a feminist theatre company, and as such we are interested in developing works that are written by, for or about women. While we do not stipulate that the playwright must be female, priority will be given to works which develop and enrich the canon of theatre for women.

Submission deadline is October 15th, 2013, at 5 pm. 
Submissions must be emailed by this date in order to be considered.

To apply, send a copy of your script in pdf or Word format, along with a cover letter stating your reasons for applying to the program and your history as a playwright to shesaidyestheatre@gmail.com.

Pending funding, we pay a modest honorarium to all participating playwrights and dramaturges.

The Mail-Order Dramaturgy program is an annual project of She Said Yes! Theatre Company.
