Left Coast Theater anthology: "Closets are for Clothes."


Deadline: March 18, 2023 - 11:59 PM PDT


We are currently accepting submissions for a staged reading of our next anthology, Closets are for Clothes.

Be they literal or metaphorical, many queer folk have had to navigate a closet or two. But we love when people live their lives open and proud! Closets aren’t for lives; they’re for clothes (and maybe the occasional skeleton). This will be an anthology of 6 or 7 pieces written about navigating the closets in our lives. While we love a good queer coming out story, we encourage writers to think outside the box with this theme.

There is no limit on the number of scripts any one playwright may submit; however, each script must be submitted separately.

Please submit your script by 11:59pm on Sat, 3/18

Chosen scripts will be part of a staged reading in May.

To submit your script (see formatting requirements below), please click the FILL OUT FORM link at the top of the page and complete our submission form.
