Urban Stages looking for new full-length plays

web site

Looking for new full-length plays with small casts (7 or less actors accepted, but we prefer 4 or less. Doubling is okay)!

WHO WE ARE
Urban Stages is a 30-year-old award-winning Off-Broadway Theatre specializing in new plays by up-and-coming writers. www.urbanstages.org

PROCESS & AWARDS
All submissions are reviewed by our Literary Committee. A select few (approximately 20) are given Staged Readings. 1 or 2 of our Staged Readings move on to full productions. Playwrights of full productions are paid via our Off-Broadway writers’ contract and gain press exposure. Many Urban Stages’ productions go on to larger venues regionally and internationally. All Playwrights of full productions are eligible for our Emerging Playwright Award (an additional $500 and further press exposure).

WHAT TO SUBMIT
Full-length plays only. Small casts: 7 actors or less accepted. 4 actors or less preferred. Doubling is okay. Any subject matter is acceptable, but plays with diverse social issues and diverse casts are given special consideration. We’re looking for nearly polished plays with strong voices.

HOW TO SUBMIT
Email submissions will not be accepted. Scripts must be firmly bound. No changes or revisions accepted after submission. No double-sided pages. Plays MAY HAVE BEEN developed elsewhere, BUT NEVER PRODUCED in New York City. There is no limit to submission. There is no submission fee. It usually takes two to six months for us to read and process your script. We ask that you do not call or email our offices to inquire on the status of your play. Plays from overseas and throughout the United States are accepted and considered. BUT special attention will be given to playwrights who live in or near New York.

With your submission, please include:
- Biography and/or author’s history of the play
- Character breakdown
- Brief synopsis of the play.
- SASE (a small one for a response letter OR a large one so we can return your play)
