The T. Schreiber Studio & Theatre is excited to introduce our “New Works Initiative,” (formerly the New Works Project). The T. Schreiber Theatre is dedicating its resources to providing writers with the opportunity to hear their works read out loud and in a professional setting, while inviting our audience to join us in informing the development of new plays all season long.

At the end of the season, the plays read will be considered for a Workshop Production in September of 2019, produced by the Studio.

Mission Statement: The Terry Schreiber New Works Initiative is committed to supporting the development of new plays in a safe and nurturing environment-one that serves the playwright while enriching the T. Schreiber community as a whole. The Theatre will provide the playwright access to the expertise of experienced theatre professionals, sophisticated and well-trained actors, and a supportive, interactive audience. In the New Works Initiative, T. Schreiber Studio & Theatre will develop new theatrical productions through a series of staged readings and collaborative refinement. The goal is to foster and elevate writers’ work to its fullest potential. Each piece has the opportunity to be considered for a Workshop Production in September of 2019.

The New Works Initiative is committed to script development and successful production of new works. Chosen projects are expected to participate fully in the development process: working directly with the T. Schreiber Studio staff during staged readings; interacting with audiences post-readings; and if chosen, participating in a Workshop Production. T. Schreiber cannot provide transportation or housing to playwrights submitting works from outside the NYC area.

Guidelines: Successful submission of a project does not guarantee a slot in the 2018 – 2019 season’s New Works Initiative. Plays accepted for an Invited Reading in the 2018 – 2019 season agree to be considered for Workshop Production in September of 2019.

Only full-length stage plays that have not yet been produced on a full scale will be considered, with a few exceptions being made for full length screenplays (however preference will be given to theatre pieces.) Projects with an outside director may be considered, however the director and playwright agree to give casting priority to students and alumni from the T. Schreiber Studio.

Submissions are now open for the 2018-2019 season.

Submissions will be accepted through July 31st, 2018.  

Playwrights may submit a single full-length script.

Send a BLIND copy (a copy that has NO identifying information about the playwright) of your full-length play to NewWorks@tschreiber.org.

Along with your play submission, please include a New Works Initiative Application resume, character breakdown and brief synopsis of the play.  If your play is selected for a reading you will be notified by email.
