Keegan Theatre's Boiler Room Series - Search for New Plays & Musicals

web site

Please complete this form to submit your new play or musical for consideration.

The Boiler Room Series is committed to supporting the development of new plays and musicals. Five plays or musicals will be selected to be workshopped and performed as Boiler Room Series staged readings over the course of the in 2017-2018 season, and selected scenes from all 5 plays will be showcased in a festival in July.

The plays chosen will be announced on a rolling basis; the script chosen for October’s reading will be announced in late September.

Submissions will be accepted until April 1, 2018.  

Keegan Theatre, a professional, non-equity theatre in Washington, DC, is accepting submissions for development during its 2017-2018 Season AND possible inclusion as a full, world premiere production in a future mainstage season. Six pieces will be selected for inclusion in a festival sampling of new works in development at Keegan Theatre. Five pieces will be selected for a workshop process that culminates with a public staged reading.

All submissions must be full length plays or musicals aligned with the theatre's mission of taking audiences to the vital heart of theatre: extraordinary artists in an intimate setting exploring the human condition.

Submitted work should not have had any significant development or a full production at another theatre. We're looking for truly NEW works here.

Submissions will be assessed by Keegan Theatre's Artistic Development Team and a panel of independent playwrights, directors, and editors. Submissions will remain anonymous to the panel until after they have been selected for further development.

Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Applications that do not address the prompts accurately or fully will not be reviewed.

Thank you for your interest in developing your new play or musical with Keegan Theatre. We look forward to reading your piece!
