Congo Square Theatre Company's August Wilson New Play Initiative (Ongoing)

Material: Full-length plays, Translations, Adaptations, Musicals and Performance Art (submitted through literary agent or accompanied by a letter of recommendation).

The late August Wilson has been supportive of Congo Square Theatre Company since our inception as a donor, audience member and Founding Advisory Board member. Through open readings, development workshops, commissions and full productions, we will work to help develop the next generation of great American writers.

Congo Square Theatre Company is an ensemble dedicated to producing definitive and transformative theatre spawned from the African Diaspora, as well as from other world cultures. Congo Square Theatre Company seeks to establish itself as an institution of multicultural theatre. We will consider productions of previously produced plays. We do not accept unsolicited scripts for consideration for our seasons. You may submit your play through a literary agent or accompanied by a letter of recommendation by a theater professional (i.e. an artistic director or literary manager at a professional theater). If neither of these apply to you, you may write a letter of inquiry to Aaron Todd Douglas, Associate Artistic Director, and submit a brief synopsis, cast list, relevant production history and 10-15 pages of sample dialogue. The company may then request a complete script. No email or fax submissions accepted. Please include a SASE if you would like your materials returned. We accept submissions year-round.
