Script Submissions


Playwrights Horizons

Playwrights Horizons accepts unsolicited manuscripts of full-length, original plays by living American writers. As a writers’ theater who believes there are as many distinctive styles and voices as there are playwrights, we remain open to as wide a range of plays — and approaches to playwriting — as possible. We are looking for idiosyncratic, accomplished, original theatrical voices.

  • Deadline: Ongoing

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility: We don't consider synopses and dialogue samples and will not respond to them. We also don't accept unsolicited scripts via email.

    Due to the small size of our staff and the sheer number of scripts we receive, we’re not able to respond personally to every play, or to offer feedback. If we’re interested in pursuing a conversation about your play after reading it, you’ll hear from us in about six months.

    Play submissions should be sent in care of the Literary Office. Musical submissions (script and CD) should be sent to the attention of Kent Nicholson, Musical Theater Producing Associate.

Studio Theatre

Studio Theatre is looking for new plays that explore the contemporary world with style, wit, and passion. We consider new plays for both its Main Series and Studio X. In general, we respond to plays with well-crafted dialogue and command of dramatic action. Our spaces are intimate—excellent for creating powerful encounters between actors and audiences, but not well-suited to multiple realistic sets. Please take a look at our current and past programming to get a fuller sense of the range of our producing interests.

  • Deadline: Ongoing

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility: We accept submissions from established literary agents or through direct solicitation from our artistic leadership, and program both produced and unproduced plays. We have found that we can best serve writers whose work is a good match for our institution by maintaining relationships with new work development programs, fringe festivals, and educational institutions in the US and abroad rather than accept unsolicited manuscripts.

  • Eligibility: Playwrights at different stages in their careers who share our sense of daring and passion, and a desire to develop their work in a collaborative, supportive setting.
