Theatrefolk Inc. is seeking one-act Middle School play submissions for publication

web site

No deadline given

Theatrefolk Inc. is seeking one-act Middle School play submissions by 'Black, Indigenous, People of Color' (BIPOC) playwrights for immediate publication.

Our mission is to represent student voices and to let students know they are not alone. It has been made clear where we have succeeded and where we have failed in this pursuit. We want to do better and we want to start with Middle School plays.

It’s crucial that Middle School students know there are playwrights out there speaking directly to them and for them. A call for High School plays will be announced later in the year.

Submission Criteria
  • Plays are between 25 and 35 minutes in length. 
  • The majority of our customers at the Middle School level work on productions during class so the running time should fit within a class period.
  • Plays have a majority of middle-school-aged characters. 
  • We want to feature middle-school-aged voices.
  • Plays are contemporary. 
  • We want Middle School stories that take place today.
  • Plays have simple staging requirements 
  • Many of our customers need to do a lot with a little.
  • Can your play be performed online? 
  • Not a requirement. But we envision that plays that can be performed online or in a social distancing scenario may receive more productions.

  • Playwrights may submit more than one play. 
  • Plays cannot be under contract to another publisher. 
  • Playwrights will be notified immediately about receipt of scripts and within 6 weeks regarding publication.

Please submit your work to submissions@theatrefolk.com with a cover letter and contact information. Tell us about yourself and your play.

We look forward to reading your work.
