Parity Productions: Applications Now Open for The Annual Parity Development Award


Deadline: March 1, 2023
Or when the first 150 scripts are received

Go to paritydatabase.org and create a free profile. Once your profile is created, go to the left-hand menu bar and click "The Parity Development Award" and then click "apply now".

Full-length plays for consideration must be new and may not have had a previous professional production (either Equity or non-Equity). Plays that have been previously produced will not be read. However, we will consider works that have had prior readings or workshops.

Full-length plays for consideration may not be musicals or solo shows. All scripts must be neat and in an easily readable format. Some suggested formats are Sam French, Dramatists Guild, or Final Draft format.

About the Award:
Each year, Parity presents two awards to early-to-mid career playwrights who have demonstrated a dedication to the craft of playwriting, a singular talent for storytelling, and whose work is in harmony with Parity’s artistic mission. The selected playwrights receive $2,500 each, and extensive developmental support for their play, including one “closed door” reading with the Parity team and at least one public reading, with an option for Parity to produce the awarded work. 

This development award is for female identifying or gender expansive playwrights.

Playwrights may only send one play for the initial application.
There is no application fee.
