Script Submissions

Stage Left does not accept unsolicited full manuscripts from individuals. We do accept them directly from literary agents. If you believe you have a play that fits our artistic mission to raise debate on political and social issues, and would like to submit your work for production in our mainstage season or development, please submit the items below. Should your materials interest us, we will contact you and ask for the complete script.

Production/development history (if applicable)
One page synopsis
10-page excerpt
Supporting Materials: Any other information you feel may be helpful, including letters of recommendation from Artistic Directors or Literary Managers of other professional theatres.
