The New Work Series is an opportunity for playwrights to have their work read at any stage of the plays journey. The scripts will receive minimally staged productions before an audience and feature a talkback. We have accepted all of our submissions for the Spring New Work Series but are always accepting submissions to be considered for next Series.
New work will be considered from local (Ypsilanti, MI ) and non-local playwrights. Any work having already received a production must be seeking further development or open to the possibility. The New Theatre Project will also consider short plays, incomplete work, work based on classical texts, music with the possibility of a theatrical staging, or any otherwise unconventional work for the stage (dance theatre, performance art, etc.)
Playwrights are asked to submit a 10-page script sample, character listing, and a synopsis. Any additional materials that may help us understand the piece will also be accepted, though please keep them brief and concise.
Script submissions must be emailed to [email protected] Requests for full-length scripts will be emailed shortly thereafter.
No snail mail scripts will be accepted.
We look forward to reading!
