Script Submissions


Freshwater Theatre

Freshwater Theatre prides itself on constantly working with new artists, expanding our family. We’re always on the lookout for new scripts and new technical artists to work with.

  • Deadline: Ongoing

  • Application Fee: Free

    Eligibility: While we certainly are interested in world premieres of new plays, we also are very interested in second and third productions of new works, as we believe this to be the key to finding the works that will propel theater into the future.

  • Contact: info@freshwatertheatre.com

  • Submission Information

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.
