Walking Shadow Theater is accepting new plays


Deadline: February 15, 2022

To submit, please email a PDF with the subject line “Play Submission: Title of Play” to walkingshadowrt@gmail.com

Please include a brief synopsis and character breakdown in the body of the email, as well as your contact information. If you are submitting multiple scripts, send each one individually.

WSRT is looking for ensemble pieces that have a run time of 70-90 minutes, or roughly 50-80 pages.

Additionally, all scripts need to be conducive to a virtual setting; for example, pieces reliant on physical action, slapstick comedy, or direct character interaction may not translate well to a virtual platform. We’re not particular about content, setting, character tropes, etc. All options are on the table.

Building natural dialogue, believable relationships, and storyline continuity are aspects of script and story development that our company members excel at assessing. We all love a good monologue or two, though overuse of monologues can be detrimental to a virtual reading.

The above items are merely guidelines, not firm rules. If your script is shorter or longer than suggested, or if a character absolutely must get a pie in the face, our Vetting Committee will take that into consideration during the review process.
