12 Peers Theater seeks full-length plays

web site

12 Peers Theater is accepting unsolicited submissions of new full-length plays to be recorded and released monthly on a podcast about and featuring new plays. In an effort to maximize exposure for playwrights and assist them in securing full productions, 12 Peers Theater will record and release readings of new plays to be aired on our Modern Myths Podcast throughout 2017.

We understand that there are many forms of theatrical storytelling, but here are a few guidelines that will help you determine if your play is right for us. We will not consider plays that have had a major AEA production; plays that have had productions in smaller professional, semi-professional, community, and educational settings are acceptable.

We will only accept full-length plays; no one-acts, collections of one-acts, or musicals. Due to recording limitations, plays should be able to be performed with no more than 6 actors (doubling permitted). As a company we are drawn to plays with themes of social and cultural identity, plays that are politically, socially, and ethically relevant, and plays with mythic themes. We are also drawn to plays with a clear sense of dramatic action, an excellent use of language, and a creative use of theatrical resources.

If you would like to submit, please send your play, a brief synopsis, and a biography to Matt Henderson, 12 Peers Theater’s Literary Manager, at mhenderson@12peerstheater.org by August 1st, 2016. One submission per playwright, please.
