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.

Please take a look at our current and past programming to get a fuller sense of the range of our producing interests.

  • 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.
