Raw Stages History Theater

Web site

Raw Stages is an annual series of staged readings open to the public - a great opportunity for playwrights to workshop a script with a team of professional artists and receive audience feedback.

One or two play ideas will be selected to progress into a complete script to be presented at the festival. Playwrights will be awarded $1,500 and at the conclusion of the festival their script may be considered for a full commission and production in History Theatres mainstage season.

Playwrights should submit:
  • A one-page treatment which includes plot synopsis, cast of characters, and a statement of why you believe the play would fit History Theatre's mission. 
  • A 10-page writing sample from previous dramatic work.
Treatment submission deadline: June 1, 2014
Playwrights will be notified by July 1st if their treatment is selected and will have until Dec. 15th to submit a first draft. The Raw Stages workshop and reading will take place in the first three weeks of January 2015.

Send submissions as an electronic Word or PDF document to: newplays@historytheatre.com
