Call For Submissions For New Voices: Original Plays At Hopewell Theatre
January 1-December 31
New Voices wants scripts that are both unique and universal, scripts that are authentic, funny, disruptive, and/or poignant in unexpected ways. We are looking for a variety of voices, particularly those that have been underrepresented in American theatre.
The scripts may be for full-length or short nonmusical plays. They must be original to the submitter, unpublished, complete, and previously unproduced. No adaptations or works that involve third-party rights will be considered.
Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis, and simultaneous submissions are welcome. Scripts that are not immediately chosen might be considered at a later date. We will try to respond in a timely fashion.
Submit to email@example.com. Submissions must be in .doc, .pdf., or .rtf format only. Files should include a cover page with full title and author name and contact information.
