Theatrefolk was started in 1994 by playwright Lindsay Price and actor Craig Mason. We believe passionately in the integral role theatre arts plays in a well-rounded education.
The study of theatre is as important to the learning process as any other subject. It develops critical thinking, communication skills, team-building, self-confidence, and discipline.
Have you written something suitable for student performance? Theatrefolk is seeking original creative scripts for publication.
We are looking for full lengths and one acts at least twenty minutes long.
With the exception of classical adaptations, the majority of the characters in the script must be youths.
We prefer plays with:
- Flexible casting
(e.g. doubling, gender flexible)
- More females than males
- Competition-length one-acts
- Ten minute plays
- Single-character pieces
- Scene collections
Ready to Submit?
- Scripts may be submitted via email only. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Include a brief synopsis along with production history & reviews (if available).
- The only formatting requirement is that the play be easy to read and understand.
