11th Annual National Jewish Playwriting Contest

web site

Deadline: August 15, 2021

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but the current review cycle closes on August 15, 2021. Plays submitted after this date will be held for the next cycle.

Full guidelines can be found at www.jewishplaysproject.org/guide. Please note that while we accept plays in many formats, we prefer the Dramatist’s Standard Format.

We are currently seeking unproduced full-length (65+ minutes) plays and musicals that focus on aspects of 21st Century Jewish identity, culture, and ideas, and the complex and intersectional nature of contemporary Jewish life.

While we value history, we will always lean toward plays that tackle vibrant strands of today’s world: social, racial and economic justice; strong women in Jewish life; diverse stories of Jews of Color; LGBTQIA inclusion; new perspectives on Israel, environmentalism, and interfaith relations in addition to deep conversations about our complex and multifaceted identities.

There is no submission fee (because those suck). Writers may submit more than one script. Submissions from previous years are accepted, particularly if there is a new draft of the script.

The following must be true of a submitted play or musical:

1. It contains significant Jewish themes, characters, content, or points of view.

2. It does not deal directly with the history of the Shoah or the World War II period generally.

3. It does NOT fall into the beloved category of "ethnically stereotypical comedy".

4. It is in English, or primarily in English – we love plays that play with languages.

5. It is full length, meaning over 65 minutes or 60-70 pages.

6. It has not had a full production in the NY Metro region, or a major regional theater (LORT C or above).

7. The play has never been published in any form.

Submitted plays and musicals will be considered for:

§ Jewish Playwriting Contest: our national, community-powered search for the most exciting new Jewish plays;

§ Artist Shabbats: small-group, private sessions focused on one new play;

§ Renegade Readings: rapid response readings for new plays in critical stages of development.

§ NYC Readings: public and industry presentations in prominent NYC venues of new plays and musicals that are ready for production;

§ Jewish Musicals Cabaret: a brand new, still-forming celebration of the form.

§ OPEN: Festival of New Jewish Theater: our ever-changing showcase of new work.

New Visions seeks full-length plays

web site

Deadline: September 1, 2021

New York Classical Theatre, an AEA, Off-Broadway Theatre, is expanding its repertoire beyond the classics and launching its first-ever new play competition: New Visions.

The vision statement of NY Classical affirms that we “believe that everyone—regardless of social, economic, or educational background—should have the opportunity to enjoy live professional theatre together as a community.”

We recognize that the historic theatrical canon from which American theatre derives its “classics” has a long history of violence, oppression, and erasure of bodies, identities, and voices that are not white, not male, not cis-gendered, not heteronormative, and/or are not able-bodied.

In an effort to expand our mission to address this erasure, NY Classical is embarking on a three-year initiative to develop two new, original plays for production in our 2024 and 2025 seasons. We are seeking plays that explore new ways of viewing the “classics,” expand our ideas of what “classics” can be, and challenge the power structures that undergird the notion of “classics.”
These New Visions can include, but are not limited to…

Adaptation/Translation. Examples include: Cherrie Moraga’s The Hungry Woman and Herbert Siguenza’s El Henry.

Response/Subversion. Examples include: Branden Jacobs Jenkins’s An Octoroon and Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Prequel/Sequel. Examples include: Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2

Plays that engage with history and bring forgotten events to life. Examples include: John Guare’s A Free Man of Color and August Wilson’s Gem of the Ocean

Plays that engage with written stories beyond the stage, including novels, poems and poetry collections, and journals that exists in the public domain. Examples include: Kate Hamill’s Pride and Prejudice and Kristin Laurence’s Little Women

Plays that derive from oral histories, rituals, and other forms of creating, knowing, remembering, and documenting the world beyond the written word. Examples include: Ondinnok’s Rabinal Achi and SPAC’s Tenshu Monogatari.
For Phase One of New Visions, we will select 8 quarter-finalist plays.

During 2022, each selected playwright will receive:

An invitation-only studio reading by a professional director and professional actors

A conversation with our Literary Director to discuss the play and determine how to structure feedback to best serve the playwright’s goals

Targeted feedback from our invited audience of the theatre’s board, staff, and community members.

A $200 stipend

A script review by our Literary Director following the reading and revisions by the playwright.

For Phase Two, based on feedback from the invited audience, the development of the work, and the opinions of our Literary and Artistic Directors, at least four of the eight plays from Phase One will be invited to continue developing their work with NY Classical. 

During 2023, each continuing playwright will receive:

A full, public staged reading under Equity’s 29 hour reading guidelines.

Continuing conversations with our Literary Director to further develop the play.

A $300 stipend

For Phase Three, 2 of the plays from Phase Two will be selected to receive in 2024:

A one-week development workshop of their play with plans for a full production in our 2024 and/or 2025 seasons. This workshop will include a professional director and dramaturg chosen in conversation with the playwright.

Round-trip airfare and housing for the workshop.

A $70 per diem.

A $500 stipend.


We invite and encourage playwrights of all backgrounds, experience, and training to apply.

***We are especially interested in plays that engage histories and traditions from outside the European canon.*** 

***We are especially interested in works that challenge and contest the classical canon.*** 

Eligibility Requirements:

USA Based Playwrights Only.

Play must be primarily in English. Bilingual plays, including ASL, are encouraged.

Only plays that have not had a professional production are eligible. Scripts that have had readings, workshops, and university productions are welcome.

Plays must have an estimated run time between 70 and 150 minutes.

Plays must include a minimum of 50% characters from historically excluded groups.

We are not looking to commission a new play. We are looking to develop existing original works.

We are not accepting musicals at this time. However, plays with music are okay.

Please submit the following as one .pdf titled “LAST NAME – TITLE OF PLAY” to literary@nyclassical.org:


Your name

A 100-200 word synopsis of the play

A character breakdown that describes the minimum 50% characters that are from historically excluded groups as defined in the opening paragraphs of this call.

A brief statement (as short as one sentence) of how this play is in conversation with an idea of “classics”

The first ten pages of dialogue from the play you would like considered.

Please put “New Visions - Submissions - (your last name)” in the subject line

Please do not send complete scripts unless requested.

Submissions close September 1, 2021.

We contact shortlisted playwrights for complete scripts by November 8, 2021.

Musicals Now Festival

web site

Deadline: September 30, 2021 midnight EDT

Piper Theatre Productions yearly festival, Musicals Now is seeking submissions. Our first season, Prospect Hill, featured a new queer musical by Mark A. Galinovsky and Lily Ali-Oschatz.

One show will be selected to be the outdoor main stage show of our July 2022 summer season. We are currently looking for submissions.

One musical will be selected for production.

$3000 honorarium will go to Songwriter / Book Writer team or individual.

One play will be selected for second placement and if the winning play cannot be performed then an offer to the second spot. An honorarium of $300 will be awarded to the second place winner.

What we’re looking for...

The Musicals Now Festival is about development. Selected artists are expected to be part of the team; meeting with director and designers, attending casting sessions and rehearsals, and speaking with our summer youth education members about what it takes to put on a new musical.

We’re looking for vital and urgent stories to share, artists with great passion, and characters that touch hearts and challenge minds.

We’re seeking storytellers & musicians from all walks of life, all racial backgrounds, identities, neurodiversities, sexualities, ages. This festival strives to be open to all and aims to represent Brooklyn.

We’re particularly keen on projects that use strong elements of Physical Theatre that adhere to Jerzy Grotowksi’s Ten Principals as taken from the book 'Towards a Poor Theatre' by Grotowski pages 211 - 218.

Things to Consider...

Productions are budgeted at $35,000 which includes: six performances, a small band, professional sound with lavaliers, a director, a three week rehearsal schedule, full technical and design support.

Piper has worked under Equity Showcase Contract in the past. We’re not sure if Equity Showcases will be permitted next year as they weren’t this year.

We’re an outdoor theatre company situated in Washington Park, Park Slope at the Old Stone House in front of a reconstructed Dutch Farmhouse which interprets the first Battle of the American Revolution. All performances are performed against its stone backdrop. Make your play revolutionary! It’s a unique and special place.

Design Realities at Piper…

Sets: We usually use levels and set pieces to tell our stories. Shows with heavy set requirements aren’t our bag. We want to put our funds into people first and don’t want to see a huge set put in a dumpster at the end of a season.

Lighting: Our shows start at 8:00 pm and it doesn’t get terribly dark till 9:00 pm, so lighting is rather limited for the first hour. Clean blackouts for the start of our plays can’t happen. Please consider transitions for that first hour.

Costumes: Solid 20 year Costume stock collection.

Sound: This is our biggest production cost. We use lavaliers / professional rented sound system. Our bands are usually no more than four or five musicians.

Druid New Writing script submission window is now open

web site

Deadline: July 30, 2021 8PM

ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM

Playwrights who submit a script during the submission window will have their work read. Scripts received outside of this time will not be considered. Scripts sent via email, post or other means will not be accepted.

The company accepts plays in the English language. For the purposes of clarity: Druid accepts translations of original plays into English which meet our criteria.

Please ensure you have read our guidelines before submitting your script.

How It Works

For the open submission process, a reading panel assists the Artistic Director in assessing your play and ensures that a range of perspectives are brought to bear on each submission.

While Druid gives consideration to all plays submitted within the allotted period, we are not in a position to give a detailed a response to each submission.

The open submission process takes place alongside commissions, workshops, mentoring, public readings and other playwright development initiatives as part of Druid’s commitment to bring new work into production.

Scripts are only accepted via our online form.

This form allows you to upload your script, supply your contact information and provide us with some basic information. It is imperative that you read the guidelines below before considering submitting a script. You will be asked to confirm that your script adheres to all guidelines.

Please do not email scripts to Druid. Scripts will only be accepted via our online form.

GUIDELINES

Submit only one script per submission window. Once submitted a new draft cannot be resubmitted unless requested.

Submit original work only.

Submit only those plays that have not had a full professional or amateur production. In this light, plays emerging from student productions or from a reading/workshop will be accepted.

Writers whose work has previously been produced by amateur theatre companies are asked to submit only those plays that are not currently intended for a future production.

Druid is not in a position to accept historical / biographical plays. For example, the company is more likely to produce a contemporary, more traditionally-structured play that has a connection to Ireland than an experimental opera about a historical figure with no connection to Ireland.

Druid is not in a position to accept radio scripts, TV scripts or screenplays. Submitted plays must be written for the stage.

Druid is not in a position to accept musicals or plays for children. Plays should be fully completed and have a running time of at least 40 minutes.

Please ensure that you are familiar with Druid’s work before submitting your script. You are expected to submit your script to Druid only if you believe it would be of interest to the company.

The aim of the New Writing process in Druid is to find new writers and voices that can be nourished rather than a finished polished piece of work. Druid looks forward to collaborating, guiding and nurturing writers, building a relationship with those voices who will grace our stages for years to come.


FORMATTING GUIDELINES

Scripts should be typed on A4 with pages numbered

Please ensure you check the spelling in your script thoroughly

Font size should not be lower than 12pt

Stage directions must be in italics

Please save your file in PDF

Your name and contact details should not appear anywhere on the script

Failing to remove your name or contact details from a script will render it ineligible

Due to the large volume of scripts received annually, Druid cannot provide detailed feedback on each script received.

Due to our small staff, only the first 100 plays submitted will be guaranteed consideration and only finalists will be contacted. Finalists will be notified of their status by September 15th, 2021, and final selections will be made by October 30th, 2021.

Three original, full-length plays (under 120 pages) will be selected and given minimally staged readings between January 10th – March 30th, 2022 (if we are unable to have in-person readings due to COVID19, they will be done virtually). Playwrights must be local to the Tri-state area, ideally within a 90-minute commute to Brooklyn, NY as your attendance is requested. Brooklyn-based playwrights will be given first consideration. Chosen playwrights will receive a $350 stipend.

To be considered, plays must meet the following criteria:

No previously produced plays, although previous staged readings/workshops are not disqualifying factors.

The play must be completed at the time of submission – unfinished or partial drafts cannot be accepted at this time. Plays may still be in development, but they must be audience-ready at the time of submission. If the play is heavily revised AFTER being submitted, it MUST be resubmitted before the end of the submission period.

Plays must be able to be read by no more than 7 actors and someone on stage directions. If double and triple casting is possible, please advise. We are interested in plays that feature diverse casts.

We are unable to accept new musical submissions at this time, given the limited technical nature of this reading series.

To submit, please attach a 10-page script sample AND your full script to submissions@bravenewworldrep.org

The 10-page script sample can include 10 pages of consecutive or non-consecutive content from your script (please clearly label jumps if you choose to submit non-consecutive content). Both the 10-page sample and full script must be submitted in PDF format with numbered pages. 

In a separate document or in the body of your email please also include a short synopsis of your play, a brief bio, where you found this call for submissions, and any relevant website link(s). 

Submissions are limited to one play per playwright per season. Multiple play submissions by the same playwright for the same season will not be considered.

Brave New World Rep is committed to giving a platform to voices and stories from underrepresented and historically disenfranchised communities. For this season, we are specifically seeking submissions from playwrights belonging to communities that have been disproportionately affected by over-policing and police violence. Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Muslim, immigrant, LGBTQIA+, differently-abled, and womxn playwrights are HIGHLY encouraged to submit and will be prioritized.

Brave New World Repertory Theatre, a Brooklyn-based company, reaches under-served audiences to promote a love of theatre, with re-imagined classics and brave new works that reflect our diverse community. BNW’s free-to-low-cost programs range from intimate readings to large outdoor productions, and cast unique and historic Brooklyn venues in a leading role. We seek to tell stories that celebrate life and explore social justice; stories that make us laugh, feel deeply, and find common ground.

Teatro Chelsea is soliciting submissions of plays by Latinx playwrights for their A-Tipico New Play Festival. We encourage local, national and international artists to submit full-length plays during our open submission process. 

A-Típico was born out of a desire to see a more diverse set of stories told about our Latinx communities. It is a place to foster Latinx playwrights and spotlight those stories that so often go untold. In this upcoming iteration of the festival we want to highlight a variety of plays, including stories about and by Afro-Latines, indigenous Latines, and queer Latines. 

Following the submission process, Teatro Chelsea will select four plays to receive staged readings in the festival. Three of the selected plays will be presented in-person at the Chelsea Theatreworks Blackbox and one play will be presented virtually via Zoom.

Their selection will be vetted by Teatro Chelsea’s creative team and the final scripts will be considered for a full production in the Spring 2022 or 2023 season.

Qualifications

The works submitted must meet the following criteria:

--The playwright must be 18 years of age.

--The play must not have had a professional production, or be scheduled to have a professional production, prior to June 1, 2022. A professional production means a fully staged production with a full rehearsal process and all of the theatrical elements traditionally expected are present.

--We are seeking to develop plays of all shapes and sizes; however, we are prioritizing full-length plays. One acts, Solo pieces, theatre for young audience pieces will still be accepted and put under consideration.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre seeks scripts

web site

Deadline: September 30, 2021
UK

Due to the ongoing pandemic it will take longer to reply to you about your script than usual - please bear with us!

The Stephen Joseph Theatre has a proud history of producing exciting, inspiring, world-class new writing. As well as producing the world premieres of Alan Ayckbourn’s plays, we have produced new writing by playwrights including Torben Betts, Vanessa Brooks, Fiona Evans, Tim Firth, Vicky Ireland, Dawn King, Stephen Mallatratt and Claudine Toutoungi.

If you have written a brilliant play which you think would be a great fit for the SJT, we would like to hear from you.

We are currently looking for:

· New, original plays

· Plays with a focus on local/regional stories, ideally Yorkshire or coastal

· Plays which are bold and theatrically adventurous

· Adaptations of books/films (if you already have the adaptation rights)

· Plays with female protagonists and at least 50% female characters

· Work for families and young people

· New musicals

Female writers, ethnically diverse writers and writers from diverse socio-economic backgrounds are currently under-represented in our submissions, therefore we are particularly interested in receiving plays from these writers. The SJT is committed to engaging with artists from a wide range of backgrounds and identities, because we believe that this results in the most interesting, vibrant, and engaging theatre.

We are NOT currently looking for:

· Proposals or incomplete scripts
· First drafts - as we do not have the capacity to accept resubmissions
· Plays that have already been produced
· Biographical plays about historical figures

Sometimes writers send their plays to us because they feel they are 'Ayckbourn-esque'. Since we are lucky enough to have the real Alan Ayckbourn working here at the SJT, we are unlikely to programme plays which are very similar to his work. If you think that your play falls into this category, then we suggest that it might be better suited to other theatres.

Submissions are now open until 30th September 2021

Our literary department is small, and we want to engage with the work of as many different writers as possible. For this reason, we can only accept one script submission per writer per year.

Please send us a synopsis and the first 20 pages of your script using this Script Submission form.

Unfortunately, we cannot read scripts unless this form is submitted. This is to help us keep track of all submissions in a streamlined, efficient way and therefore gives us more time to read more plays! We only accept scripts digitally, rather than paper copies, for eco-friendly reasons.

Once your synopsis and excerpt has been submitted, the following things will happen:

· You will receive an acknowledgement email

· Once evaluated, we will either contact you to submit your full script or if we are not able to take your play further, we will let you know. Unfortunately, we are not able to give specific feedback or enter into any correspondence about your play. This is due to the large number of script submissions and our limited resources.

· From this point your full script will be sent to members of our reading panel. If your script is subsequently recommended by the reading panel, it will then be passed onto the senior artistic team.

The large volume of submissions means that this process can take up to 6 months. During this time please do not make contact, as we may not be able to answer you.

If we do want to take your play further, we may invite you to participate in one of the following ways:

· Second Stage – an SJT showcase of extracts of new work, from local playwrights and plays which have been submitted to the literary department, from national and international writers

· Play Reading event – a script in hand rehearsed reading of your play, at the SJT

· Further discussions about a possible full production of your script, or discussions about commissioning/seed-commissioning a new play from you


The SJT commissioning opportunities include:

· Productions for our youth theatre group

· Productions for our OutReach department

· Productions in the McCarthy theatre

· Productions in The Round


If you feel your play is not ready for full production or that you want to gain more writing experience, we offer a writing course via our OutReach Department.

This course culminates in First Draft - a public showcase of new writing from the participants, at the SJT. Writers from this course often then go on to have a play selected for Second Stage.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted scripts to us. We appreciate that writing plays is not easy, and requires huge energy, bravery and will power, as well as talent. Even if your play does not find a home here at the SJT, we encourage you to submit your work to other theatres and to keep writing!

Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company Generations 2021

@betctheatre FB, Twitter, Insta

Deadline: June 14, 2021

Generations 2021: Guidelines and Submission Form

BETC’s new play development program, Generations, features the work of parent playwrights with children under 18. The name comes from BETC’s goals for the program: to welcome all generations into the theater to see new plays, and to empower playwrights to generate new work.

Each season, BETC selects one playwright through a national competition to join us in Boulder for a one-week residency. During the residency week, the playwright works with a professional director, dramaturg, and actors to develop the selected script. The week concludes with a public reading and post-reading conversation.

In order to support the work of parent playwrights, BETC is seeking full-length plays written by a parent with at least one child 18 years of age or younger as of June 14, 2021. Guidelines and the submission form are below. Please read carefully before submitting.
Entry Guidelines:

Plays must be full-length scripts (at least 70 minutes estimated run-time).

Eligible playwrights are parents of at least one child 18 years of age or younger as of the submission deadline. Playwrights must be U.S. residents.

Each playwright is limited to submission of one script for consideration.

Plays must be in the English language.

No musicals will be accepted.

We will not reconsider scripts that have been submitted to the Generations competition in previous years.

Scripts that have been produced by Equity or professional companies or that have been published are ineligible.

Scripts may not be under option or scheduled for production or publication as of June 1, 2021.

We will consider scripts that have had a workshop, reading, or academic production.
Residency and Prize Information:

The winning playwright will receive:

a week-long workshop residency, with daily rehearsals, culminating in a staged reading of the selected script;

the chance to rewrite and revise during the week as part of the script development experience;
a stipend for travel costs;
  • $500 prize; and
  • $500 childcare stipend to defray the costs associated with childcare during the residency.
The winning play will receive full consideration for production in an upcoming season. BETC will negotiate an option on the winning play and have right of first refusal on the world premiere production.

During the residency, the selected play will be rehearsed with a cast of professional actors, director, and dramaturg. The week will culminate in a public reading. This year’s Generations residency may be held online if public health circumstances dictate but our goal is to offer an in-person residency. Specific date arrangements for the residency will be made directly with the winning playwright.
Competition Deadline:

The application deadline is June 14, 2021, or when our 200-script submission cutoff is reached. Our winning playwright will be notified by September 15, 2021.

The submission form will require you to submit a blind copy of your full script as a PDF file.Please do not include your name anywhere in the sample file. The biographical and demographic info you submit will not be referenced during the selection process.
Selection process:

In our initial reading round, we read the first 20 pages of a script. Script excerpts nominated by two readers continue to the semi-finalist round, in which two readers read the full scripts and complete thorough reader responses. Highly regarded scripts become finalists. Our full committee reads all finalist scripts, then advises our producing artistic director in selecting the winning play.
FAQ’s:

Because of the volume of submissions we receive, we do not provide feedback on submitted scripts during or after the competition. We will confirm that an initial submission has been received, and notify applicants of the competition winner.

Due to available program funding and staff capacity, we will not consider scripts from grandparents or others who are not currently custodial parents of a child 18 years of age or younger. We hope to be able to expand our program to additional generations in future years, but at this time our focus is on assisting playwrights with young families.
