TBT is dedicated to producing staged readings of new work. For our purposes, "new work" means that the play has never been fully produced. Previous readings and workshops do not render the piece ineligible. We are open to one-acts as well as full-length plays. We are creating a forum for conversation, and as such we are seeking plays that raise questions about pertinent social, political, or environmental issues of our time.
Submissions are currently closed. Our next call for submissions will open in November.
While we encourage playwrights to attend rehearsals and readings, we understand that it may be impractical in some cases and do not require it. We do not discourage non-local playwrights from submitting.
In addition to a desire to foster conversation within our diverse community, TBT also seeks to support new voices in American theatre and local artists. As such, the playwright of the selected work will receive a writer's fee and will not be responsible for the payment of actors and directors nor the rental of spaces. Please note that TBT cannot provide any additional funds for travel or lodging.
To submit your play for consideration, please check back in November. Be prepared to submit your full script in PDF form, including a cover page and casting needs, as well as:
We look forward to reading the wonderful work you are creating!
