15th Annual PLAYground Submissions for Young Audiences

Facebook page

Deadline: none given


Plays must be intended for young audiences (5-18 years old) - a play is not expected to appeal to this whole age range.

Scripts must be unpublished at the time of submission.

Scripts should be full length (somewhere between 30 and 90 minutes of content, depending on your audience) or intended to be developed into a full length piece.

Playwrights can submit up to 3 scripts. Each script must be accompanied by its own cover letter.
Plays do not need to be fully polished. This is a workshop process, so we welcome pieces with potential and room to grow, and will be there to support you through that.

Please do not submit screenplays, teleplays, musicals, collaborations, or direct adaptations (though scripts inspired by, based on, or a response to a source material are welcome!)

Please send any questions, thoughts, or concerns to playgroundTYAfestival@gmail.com
