Red Theater accepts summaries and excerpts of plays you’d like us to consider.

We are excited to hear from playwrights that experiment with styles and genres; ask questions; push extremes in movement and voice; present difficult ideas; explore impossible staging. We are excited to receive submissions from emerging playwrights all over the country. Here are some ground rules:Red Theater does not accept full script submissions

We do accept, appreciate and delight in receiving ten page excerpts accompanied by brief summaries of the play you’d like us to consider. Before submitting material, we strongly encourage you to read our mission statement, research our production history, and even see a Red Theater production to get to know our interests, energy, and aesthetic. To be considered, please send a synopsis of your play, a character breakdown, and a ten-page sample.

All material must be submitted electronically to the following e-mail address:

If we like what we see, we’ll reach out to read more.

Please include all contact information with your submission.
