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.
- Cover Letter
– 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.
– Reliable contact information
Please email submissions (as either a PDF or a Word 2003 or earlier file) to:
If you are unable to do so, you may mail them to:
Stage Left Theatre

Please note in your application whether you would like to be considered for production, development, or both. Please refer to our production history page if you would like more information on the types of plays we have produced in the past.
