After many, many years of striving to produce one unpublished script per season on our mainstage and always accepting scripts for consideration from the public, we are ending our open-door submission process.
Simply, we don’t have the resources to give playwrights a fair shake. The sheer volume of submissions we receive make this impossible.
Once we have more staff, we should be able to change this policy. For now we are not accepting any unsolicited scripts, script samples, or general inquiries to see if we would possibly change our policy in order to consider a new script.
We still intend to work with our professional theater community here in Tampa Bay, and of course that community includes playwrights who are already part of our ensemble. If you are already a member of the ensemble, David Jenkins is always up for a conversation, and if you are a playwright in the Tampa Bay area who is interested in assistance in developing your work, you should reach out using the form below.
Finally, playwrights still developing scripts may want to consider our staged reading series as an opportunity to get new work heard in front of the public and professionals.
We will not return emails, phone calls, or parcels containing any blind solicitation.
Thank you for your understanding. We know full well how difficult it is to get new work in front of the people who bring it to life and look forward to the time when resources will allow us to give you the proper shake you deserve.
