PRIZES:

We offer up to $6,600 in Prizes. $3,000 to the best play or musical alone.

Can you find another festival that gives away that much? Our winners are selected by the festival’s team, so it’s not just some “popularity contest” for bringing in the largest audience. Sometimes the barest “non-glitzy” production with the smallest audience attendance wins first prize simply because it was excellent. We love sincere, heart-felt performances, and honest writing. Prize categories include: best director, best actor, best actress, best singer, best stage manager, best set, best lighting design, most creative play or musical, best choreography and best score.

Now calling all playwrights: Here’s a chance to have your play live on a New York City Stage! Submit your work to the Winterfest 2020 festival competition. Accepting plays and musicals of all genres between 5-90 minutes in length. New York Theater Festival has been a haven for playwrights for 15 seasons—Read below to find out why!

Discounts for the Coalition:

Productions in the Full Length Category - regular cost $250 - discounted $150

Productions in the One Act Category - regular cost $150 - discounted $75

Productions in the Short Category - regular cost $75 - discounted = Free but the payment of $75 must be done anyway and it will reimbursed the day of their opening night.

Productions in the Solo Category - One Act - regular cost $250 - discounted $150

Productions in the Solo Category - Short - regular cost $150 - discounted = $75

*Submissions Accepted within 50 miles from Manhattan and Shows from beyond a 30-mile radius outside of Manhattan can only run if the entire cast and crew are from New York City. Plays are considered on a first-come first-served basis. The earlier you submit, the better your chances are of having your script invited to the festival. Each applicant is fully responsible for all elements of their production, including directing, casting, stage-managing. We know exactly what you need to make your show a success and we welcome you into our community of playwrights and theater innovators!

KNOW Theatre Playwrights and Artists 2019 Festival

It is that time of year again. We have chosen our artwork for the 2019 Playwrights and Artists Festival. We, as always, extend first look to those who have submitted to our festival in years previous.

  • When/Where: 2019 in Binghamton, NY

  • Deadline: June 3, 2019

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility: 1. The play must be inspired by one of the works of art below.
    2. The play must be written between the dates June 1, and July 31, 2019.
    3. The play length needs to be between 15 - 20 minutes
    4. Cast size maximum, 5 characters. Set should be implied.
    5. Plays submitted MUST be a complete play and must include a beginning, middle and an end and contain a conflict. Our judges will be adhering to strict parameters during the adjudication process.
    6. Playwrights may only submit one play for the festival.
    7. The playwright would need to attend at least one of the two weekend performances (which take place in November). In person is preferred but we have in the past skyped with playwrights. As our festival is starting to reach a greater number people in wider locations we feel that we must take this into consideration. We always hope our playwrights can attend in person and feel the energy and excitement of having their work performed onstage for the first time but we understand that sometimes this is not logistically possible.
    8. Plays must be submitted by midnight of July 31, 2019. This submission must include 2 copies of your play, one “blind” version without name but including which artwork you were inspired by and one with a full title page. They must be submitted to binghamtoncitystage@gmail.com. Please use the title of your work in the file name and whether it is the blind or named copy. This makes it easier on the person coordinating the files and sending them on to the adjudicators. We receive many plays and don’t want anything to get lost in the mix.

Script Submissions


Playwrights Horizons

Playwrights Horizons accepts unsolicited manuscripts of full-length, original plays by living American writers. As a writers’ theater who believes there are as many distinctive styles and voices as there are playwrights, we remain open to as wide a range of plays — and approaches to playwriting — as possible. We are looking for idiosyncratic, accomplished, original theatrical voices.

  • Deadline: Ongoing

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility: We don't consider synopses and dialogue samples and will not respond to them. We also don't accept unsolicited scripts via email.

    Due to the small size of our staff and the sheer number of scripts we receive, we’re not able to respond personally to every play, or to offer feedback. If we’re interested in pursuing a conversation about your play after reading it, you’ll hear from us in about six months.

    Play submissions should be sent in care of the Literary Office. Musical submissions (script and CD) should be sent to the attention of Kent Nicholson, Musical Theater Producing Associate.

Studio Theatre

Studio Theatre is looking for new plays that explore the contemporary world with style, wit, and passion. We consider new plays for both its Main Series and Studio X. In general, we respond to plays with well-crafted dialogue and command of dramatic action. Our spaces are intimate—excellent for creating powerful encounters between actors and audiences, but not well-suited to multiple realistic sets. Please take a look at our current and past programming to get a fuller sense of the range of our producing interests.

  • Deadline: Ongoing

  • Application Fee: Free

  • Eligibility: We accept submissions from established literary agents or through direct solicitation from our artistic leadership, and program both produced and unproduced plays. We have found that we can best serve writers whose work is a good match for our institution by maintaining relationships with new work development programs, fringe festivals, and educational institutions in the US and abroad rather than accept unsolicited manuscripts.

Reminiscene– Short Film

Nigel is a downtrodden music student who's been dealt a bad hand in life. He's gone to uni on his own merit with no support from his family. His father is a tyrannical drunk who has abused him since childhood. He's a social outcast with no success with women and very few friends. He's pedantic and maniacal about his music and is fiercely intelligent, but because of his social ineptitude none of his qualities are appreciated. His teachers are largely unaware of his issues because he's a quiet kid. When he is consistently rejected by all women he fails to look for the problems in himself, but rather begrudgingly blames them. He's done the sort of mental gymnastics that have convinced him he is far better than anyone he interacts with and that is why they don't understand him.
