New Play Submissions - "ScripTease"

web site

THE RAVEN PLAYERS NEW PLAY READING SERIES

The Raven Players is committed to producing at least one original play every season. We will solicit new play submissions from January 31 through April 15. From those submissions, the Raven Players New Play Reading committee will select three to four scripts for public readings. Our goal is to then select one of those plays for a fully staged production at the Raven.

If you have questions, please contact Artistic Director Steven David Martin at steven.d.m@raventheater.org

To submit your play, please see the new play submission guidelines
(below or as a printable PDF).

THE RAVEN PLAYERS 2014 NEW PLAY SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Script must be received between January 31, 2014 and April 15, 2014.
Submit to: newplays@ravenplayers.org

Guidelines:

Full-length, original, unpublished, and unproduced plays only (no musicals, translations, adaptations or children’s plays).

All submissions MUST be received electronically:
