Manhattan Repertory Theatre is seeking new, never produced before plays

web site


40 minutes - 120 minutes

for our SPRING PLAY SERIES

April 17 - June 28, 2015

Bring your never produced before play to life at Manhattan Rep for a minimum of two performances!

Our Spring Play Series includes:

2 performances at Manhattan Rep this Spring (more if you play is selling well.)

Over 12 hours of rehearsal time on the Manhattan Rep stage

3 hours tech, 3 hours Dress rehearsal, and 6 hours of straight rehearsal time in the theatre

Weekly development discussions if you wish with Artistic Director Ken Wolf, with help with casting, direction, the best way to set up a production from the start, how to make important cuts to your play, how to better structure your play, team building and more.

If you have written a play and you feel you want some support developing it and bringing it to production, as opposed to being flung onto the stage like at so many NYC festivals, our play development series is for you!

There is no cost for our Spring Development Series, but there is a $300 refundable security deposit which secures the space from damage, and secures an average of 13 audience members per performance for a total of 26 over two performances.

Our Spring Play Series at Manhattan Rep is by invitation only.


To submit please email:

A brief introduction with detailed information about yourself and your work, the complete first rehearsal draft of your play a synopsis of the play, the running time of the play, the set and lighting requirements, the playʼs history, (readings, when it was written, etc etc.) your mailing address, and a creative team leader contact email address to: manhattanrep@yahoo.com

By Thursday March 19, 2015.

Please put “SPRING PLAY SERIES" in the subject heading.

You will be considered on a first - come first-served basis.

The earlier you submit, the better your chances of being accepted into the series. If we fill up all production development positions early on, we will end submissions. Once submitted, we will get back to you within one week as to your acceptance.
