The York Theatre Company submission guidelines

web site

The York Theatre Company is currently accepting scripts for consideration for its
Developmental Reading Series.

Please see the answers to frequently asked questions below:

Who can submit?
Both established and emerging writers. The York Theatre Company is one of the only theatres in the country that accepts unsolicited scripts.
What materials should I submit?
1. A cover letter introducing yourself and the piece, complete with name, address, phone number and email address.
2. A complete script of the piece
3. A demo of the score (as complete as possible)

How long does the evaluation process take?
The process generally takes six to twelve months: our script readers are dedicated but busy, and we're always working through a backlog.

Will my materials be returned?
While each submission will get a reply, we are unable to return your materials.


What shouldn't I submit?
. Non-musical plays: the York's mission concerns musicals only
. Jukebox musicals: the York is generally not interested in musicals without original scores, except under special circumstances

Where should I send my materials?
If you would like to submit electronically, please send the script and demo to submissions@yorktheatre.org.

If you would prefer to submit a hard copy, please send it to:
York Theatre Company

The Theatre at Saint Peter's
619 Lexington Avenue

What if I have other questions that aren't answered here?
