What kind of plays are we looking for?

We believe in theatrical magic and the power of storytelling. We are looking for plays that explore big ideas, epic journeys, and unexpected surprises. Plays that are theatrical in nature. BIG theatre. We're not looking for kitchen-sink dramas (though we think they're great). We're not looking for scripts that would be at home on a TV screen.

Please take a look at our mission and past work before submitting. We are interested in stories with strong and central female characters. We are particularly interested in casts that are primarily young and have a multitude of meaty female roles. Please see the additional submission parameters below to aid you in your submission and ensure that your work will be considered for the appropriate project. Beyond those guidelines… the world (well, our company at least) is your oyster. Surprise and delight us!

Please note:

At this time, we are only able to notify those writers whose submissions pass on to the second stage of our reading process. We are deeply appreciative of the work that is submitted to us, and we hope someday to have a reading team large enough to respond individually to all script emails, but our organization is currently too small to be able to do so. Please know that all writing that is submitted to us will be read, and that we are truly grateful to each of you for the time and consideration you put into your submissions and for your interest in our company.
