Irons in the Fire 2024


Deadline: June 21, 2023 at 5:00pm EDT

Located in NYC

Irons in the Fire is Fault Line Theatre's year-round reading series of new plays in development.

The format for every project is intentionally malleable as we know every play and playwright require something a little different. Each reading is hosted in an environment that appropriately celebrates that particular new script, and is supported by a social event that brings the Downtown Theatre Community together in a fun and meaningful way.

A Few Thoughts Before You Apply
  • Applications are due Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at 5:00pm EDT
  • You can apply with a project as either a writer or director
  • At this time, we can only accept one application per artist
  • Projects need not be finished. We accept proposals for pitches, outlines, drafts, and everything in between
  • There is no set template for each Irons in the Fire project. The only requirement is a public sharing of the piece at some point in the process.

The two lead artists on each Irons in the Fire project– usually a playwright and director– will receive a $1600 stipend.

Fault Line Theatre creates and produces socially relevant, character-driven plays for today’s audiences. We love all sorts of plays that fit into our mission.
