Theatre Exile Play Submission Policy

web site

Theatre Exile accepting script submissions for our Subscription Series productions and our Studio X-hibition New Play Development Series. At this time, we do not accept submissions for our Out of Exile program.

We only accept electronic submissions. You can use the form links below to submit. Please follow the instructions and guidelines provided below and on the individual forms.

In general, Theatre Exile is looking for stories that either pushes forward ideas or exposes part of the human condition that we prefer to keep in the dark. We seek a diverse selection of voices, styles, and content. With that in mind, we also hope that submissions will align with our vision and goals for connecting with our audiences.

As we consider plays for each program, we also consider our capacity and resources. Please note that we currently do not produce musicals, scripts with more than 5 actors, and are less than an hour or more than 3 hours in length.

Theatre Exile’s Subscription Series productions give our audiences insight into life’s challenges by sharing important stories of various perspectives.

Submissions are accepted all year long and added to our considerations list for the future. You will receive a confirmation email that your submission was filed. If we decide that your submission is not a good fit for future consideration you will receive an email. However, if you do not receive an email, it has been added to our list for considerations. Currently, we only produce three plays a season in our Subscription Series. Every season requires specific considerations and each play may take several seasons to consider. If you ever want to update or check in on the status of your submission, you can email artistic@theatreexile.org.

– Out of town artists, please submit 10-page sample only

– Philadelphia local area artists (within a 30-mile radius of City Hall in Philadelphia) may submit full scripts

Theatre Exile’s Studio X-hibition New Play Development Series is a program of plays from Philadelphia local artists that are currently in development and are far enough along to receive a public reading with actors for audience response. This is an opportunity for Theatre Exile to build artistic relationships with playwrights.

Submitting to our Studio X-hibition series is only available to Philadelphia residents. Submissions are accepted annually beginning in February to June.

For more details or to submit a play for Subscription Series consideration, please click here.

Drama Notebook submission guidelines

web site

Have you written plays for kids and teens and simply want to have them used and performed?
Drama Notebook is accepting submissions from playwrights, teachers, and actors who have written scripts or scenes for children and teens. We are building a huge library of royalty-free, high-quality scripts for use in educational settings.
Most drama teachers pay for materials out-of-pocket, and cannot afford to pay royalties, per-script fees, video fees, etc. By sharing your work, you will be benefiting thousands of educators in over 100 countries.

We can either license your script for a small fee, or purchase the copyright for a slightly larger amount. This is not life-changing $ to be sure, but you will experience the joy of knowing that your work is being performed by students all over the world.
When we publish your script, we include your bio, a link to your website (if applicable), and a way for teachers to contact you when their students perform your play!
Ready to submit your plays?

1. Download more detailed information online.
2. See an example of a formatted script.
3. Download our handy script template (optional).
4. Fill out the play submission form.

We will contact you immediately to let you know that we have received your submission, and our team will get back to you within one week to let you know whether or not we’d like to add your script(s) to our library.

What to expect after submitting your play…
We will write you right back and let you know that we received your piece, and will read it and get back to you as soon as possible. Currently, we are back-logged due to a huge influx of scripts that we are currently formatting and publishing on the site. We appreciate your patience, and if your play is accepted, we will give your script the same attention to detail as we are with our current playwrights. We estimate a maximum wait-time of 60 days and we appreciate your patience.

InterAct submission guidelines

web site

Now Accepting General Submissions

To keep our finger on the pulse of what’s going on in our world and the world of theatre, we accept samples of plays pertaining to our mission.

Please prepare:

A 30-page sample of your play

A 200-word synopsis of your play

Any development or production history your play has had

Your bio
Some tips before you submit:

Take a look at our mission.
While the personal is political, InterAct focuses on plays that use the personal to explore the political. All My Sons is an InterAct play. Long Day’s Journey Into Night is not.

Consider your genre.
InterAct does not currently produce musicals or theatre for young audiences.

Include a specific character breakdown.
Be honest about how many actors the play requires, especially if it’s not clear from the character list. Keep in mind that InterAct rarely produces plays with more than six actors.

You don’t have to sell us in your synopsis.
To give context to your sample, we want to know about the shape of the full piece: major plot points, important characters and general themes. We don’t need the one- to two-sentence buzzword pitch; your sample will sell us.
