Sprout Works Harvest Festival seeks short plays

web site

Sprout Works is seeking submissions for our inaugural short play series, THE HARVEST FESTIVAL

With this night of fully staged new works we strive to elevate playwrights, cultivate collaborative spirit, and join good plays with good people.

Sprout Works is a theatrical production company based in NYC geared toward the creation of new works, community growth, and providing professional opportunities to early career artists.

We are particularly interested in works by female identifying and gender nonconforming individuals, playwrights of color, and queer artists.

Manuscripts cannot exceed 18 pages and must be unpublished works.  Short plays are preferred, but excerpts from longer plays may be considered.  Current versions of plays cannot have been previously staged.  Extensive set or props may need to be pared down for the purposes of this production.  We strongly value the privilege and process of development and want to give playwrights the opportunity to work with directors in the rehearsal room, therefore preference will be given to NYC based writers.

Email submissions@sprout-works.com and include the subject line:
[Title of Your Play] - Harvest Festival Submission

Please include your bio, resume (if applicable), a short play synopsis, and any of the play's reading or previous production history.

We will put care in reading all submissions and will contact all playwrights by the first week of March, 2019.  If your play is not selected, it may be considered for future development at a later date.

Plays must be submitted no later than February 14th at 11:59pm.

First Read-Through: Friday March 8th*
Dress Rehearsal: Friday March 29th*
Performance: Saturday March 30th

*Dates subject to change
