Although we accept plays throughout the year, we complete most of our reading between April and September, and most playwrights are notified of the status of their submissions in the late fall or early winter. To maximize the chance of consideration in a given cycle, we strongly recommend sending us your submission prior to August 1. The Humana Festival of New American Plays, Actors Theatre of Louisville’s main venue for producing new work, is an annual event held from February through early April. Please note that we do not produce musicals, children’s shows, plays that have already received press coverage, or plays that have had an Equity production, and do not review those scripts.
Actors Theatre of Louisville remains committed to the discovery and support of playwrights who are not represented by a literary agency. We invite you to introduce us to your work by sending us a letter of inquiry along with a synopsis and a 10-page selection from one of your plays. (Please note that we cannot accept these materials electronically—only by hard copy.) If the material interests us, we will contact you to request the complete script.
