Asylum Theatre seeks plays

web site

The Asylum Theatre in Las Vegas is looking for scripts for its 2014-15 season. 

We produce 2-3 staged readings and 1-2 full productions of contemporary new work. Playwrights whose work is chosen MUST travel to attend the performance and observe the post show discussion of the play (if applicable).


The Asylum offers travel and accommodation, or a stipend toward the travel expense in exchange for permission to development and/or production of the project. The length of stay in Vegas depends upon the arrangements made with the company.
Play genre, length and cast size are not a factor in the decision-making process, though we are hoping to offer at least one comedy in our upcoming season if the right script comes our way. If your play has been previously produced it may still be considered for production, as long as it has not been done on Broadway or Off-Broadway.

The Asylum is is committed to making sure that innovative theatre happens in Vegas, but doesn't stay in Vegas. Our aim is to find asylum for progressive work in the theatre in as many places as possible by strengthening the fellowship between venues across the country, and individual artists looking to introduce their work to new audiences.

SUBMISSIONS ARE BY EMAIL ONLY. We hope to have our season decided by August 15, 2014.

Send your scripts to: info@asylumtheatre.org with the subject line showing: SCRIPT - "Play Title'
