LAMA THEATER COMPANY IS CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS TO SUBMIT ONE ACT PLAYS FOR OUR SPECIAL WINTER PROJECT: Women & Sex

web site

"What do you wear under what you wear?"

Lama is now accepting submissions for two new One Act plays that are inspired by the project’s question. We are open to submissions from both genders but we are interested in plays that address the topic from a woman’s character point of view.

When you submit please keep in mind that Lama encourages artistic exploration, provoking and risk taking writing.

We are looking for one act plays which have not been previously produced in New York. Plays that have received an Equity production, musicals, children’s shows or full-length plays are not accepted.

The chosen two One Act plays will be premièred at Under St. Marks Theater, New York as part of Lama’s Winter Season 2017.

We will assign a director to each play that is chosen. We will also provide the venue, lights, sound and production needs.


Our Mission: Lama means WHY in Hebrew. The Lama Theater Company is a writer/director driven, nonprofit company that continually raises questions and encourages bold new writing and directing. Lama generates new work that explores theatrical, psychological, political and social questions from within the nation and around the world to inspire different points of view and theatrical visions.
