The Past is Future Project seeks new plays for 22-23 season (EXTENDED)

Rate of Pay: 
$50.00 $500.00

We're seeking new works for our 22-23 season. 

We're seeking six works to be featured on our upcoming podcast Present Process and one of those plays will be produced in our 22-23 season. 

Each playwright can submit up to TWO plays of any length. Any plays submitted by the same playwright beyond the first two submissions will not be considered. Plays may be any style and genre, although we do have some guidelines.

  • Special preference will be given to plays with strong comedic elements to balance our season.
  • The plays must have been written within the last five years.
  • Adaptations will not be considered for production, but will be considered to be featured on the podcast.
  • Small cast sizes are preferred.

Plays chosen to be featured on the podcast will receive $50 prize and the playwright will be interviewed about their creative process when writing the script. Playwrights to be interviewed need access to a stable internet connection, but may opt out of the interview if they prefer.

The play chosen to be produced will receive $500 for production rights, and a bonus after production completion dependent on ticket sales.

Plays should be in PDF format and the name of the document should look like PLAYTITLE_PLAYWRIGHTNAME. All plays should be in a consistent stage play format.

Playwrights have the opportunity to receive one page of written feedback if you prefer. Feedback may take up to 3 months to receive.

Submissions accepted throughout the summer. Chosen plays will be announced in the first two weeks of JULY.
