Call for Plays

(Open Deadline)

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: As New York’s premier hub for emerging artists and new work, Ars Nova is committed to developing and producing eclectic theater, comedy and music to feed today’s popular culture. To that end, Ars Nova strives to create daring collaborations, meld disciplines and give clear voice to a new generation of artists. Founded on the principle that a professional and safe environment where risk-taking is encouraged will cultivate a community of innovators, our fundamental mission is to reinvigorate the world of live performance by supporting smart, surprising new work from the next wave of emerging artists.

Unsolicited submissions are often considered. Artists can submit material for the following ongoing series (please indicate in your materials which series you would like to be considered for):

UNCHARTED: Ars Nova’s monthly concert series, featuring a wide range of composers and songwriters on the brink of being “discovered.” All styles of music are welcome, from Broadway to the Billboard 100 and everything in between. This series has quickly become a regular hot spot for music lovers and industry taste-makers.

To be considered for the UNCHARTED series, please send a CD and biographical information, as well as any press clippings or reviews you have. It’s also helpful to include information about upcoming performances we could attend.

TRAGEDY TOMORROW: This series brings the raw underbelly of New York’s alternative comedy scene to the Ars Nova stage, showcasing innovative, alternative and irreverent comedic storytelling and variety arts.

To be considered for TRAGEDY TOMORROW, please send a description of your work (no longer than one page), biographical information, any press clippings or reviews, a DVD of your work if you have one, and
directions to any online material we could watch. It’s also helpful to include information about upcoming performances we could attend.

OUT LOUD: Ars Nova’s bi-weekly play reading series dedicated to supporting the development of brand new work by emerging playwrights.

To be considered for OUT LOUD, please send a synopsis and ten-page sample of your play, along with a playwriting resume and a cover letter detailing any previous development the play has undergone. Writers are also encouraged to invite us to readings or productions of their work. Please note: full scripts will not be considered unless requested based on the ten-page sample.

Material for all the series is reviewed throughout the year. Due to the high volume of submissions and the time and attention given to each one, it can take us up to six months to respond; please be patient. If you would like your materials returned, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

All materials should be sent to:
Attn: Submissions
Ars Nova
511 West 54th Street
New York, NY 10019
