Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the State Professional Theatre of West Virginia, is proud to open submissions for their second annual Voices of Appalachia New Play Festival. 

The goal of this open submissions process is to collect new works from across the region to tell the stories of life in Appalachia. 

We are aiming to produce one 30-minute one act and three 10-minute short plays. 

The winners of this year's contest will receive $500 for the one act and $200 for the short plays, plus a minimally staged production of their play at GVT, located in the “Coolest Small Town in America” Lewisburg, West Virginia.

The final selections will premiere as part of the 2024 Voices of Appalachia Play Festival, February 23 & 24, 2024 at Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the State Professional Theatre of West Virginia.

We are seeking one 30-minute one-act and three 10-minute short plays focused on different aspects of life and culture in Appalachia. Targeted themes include:
- Identity in Appalachia
- Heritage in Appalachia
- Appalachian Wilderness
- Duality in Appalachia (Disparity/Triumph)
- The Appalachian Exodus
- Diversity in Appalachia
- Women/Femininity in Appalachia

Anyone may submit work meeting these requirements. It is acceptable to submit more than one play. The play must not have had any productions. Folks who submit will be notified of the results either way by mid-December. There is no submission or participation fee.
