Deadline: February 10, 2024

Submissions are open through FEBRUARY 10th. The program will start on or about the first week in March. The LIVE program will meet on WEDNESDAY evenings at THE ROAD THEATRE in North Hollywood and the virtual on ZOOM with Day to TBD once the group has been selected. The program will run through NOVEMBER/DECEMBER. We meet bimonthly to start and then move into meeting once a week. Live readings will be scheduled in 2025.


1) Please submit 20 pages of a play that you have previously written.

2) Then submit an idea…the play you want to write over the 9- month commitment. Be prepared to “pitch” that idea if selected for the ZOOM interview.

3) In your submission, please also include a short bio about yourself and if you are interested in the live group (which meets in North Hollywood) or the virtual/Zoom group. 

Please send submissions: underconstruction@roadtheatre.org.

4) Being available to participate in person. We all know stuff comes up but for the program to be successful you need to be there.

We will hold ZOOM meetings with our finalists the final days of FEBRUARY. ALL PLAYWRIGHTS who have submitted will be notified about the final decisions of the committee. Please note that you need to be available to participate and be available as a member of UC by showing up for yourself and your fellow playwrights. If you CANNOT make the commitment, please reconsider applying for this year.
