Call for Women Playwrights

AGENT: Full-Length Plays;
Unrepresented PLAYWRIGHTS: Synopsis, sample dialogue

The WP is a developmental program dedicated to providing a working forum for the unique and underserved voice of women writing for the theatre today. Each season 3 new plays are selected for a collaborative workshop process, with a professional director and actors, which takes place over a period of a approximately 1 week, allowing time for the playwright to hear their work and make any adjustments they would like to make. At the end of the rehearsal, a staged reading of the play is presented at CSC (50 miles w. of NYC) for our regional audiences, giving our audiences larger exposure to new work, as well as offering the playwright an opportunity to get feedback from the audience during the development process.

PLAYWRIGHTS: Full-length scripts must be submitted through a bona fide industry agent.

Unrepresented playwrights are encouraged to apply for WP's Playwrights Lab or you may send:
*Brief synopsis (under 100 words)
*Ten-page dialogue sample
*Cover letter
Please do NOT include any other materials such as press clippings or dramaturgical notes. Please submit clean copies, and not originals. Submissions will NOT be returned.

Our address is:
Women's Project
Attn. Literary Department
55 West End Avenue
New York, New York 10023

We read every submission, and should the work spark an interest, we may contact you and request a complete script. Due to the enormous volume of submissions, response time for materials is nine to twelve months.Playwrights selected for the workshops process will receive a $250 honorarium. Additional funds for travel and housing are available for one playwright each season. One play from the WPS is selected each year to be produced in a CSC main-stage season .
