A letter from the Artistic Director to Submitting Playwrights
Thank you for your interest in submitting work to Parity Productions.
To best protect your script, we encourage (and request) that all playwrights register their scripts with copyright.gov before submission. Please go to http://www.copyright.gov/ for more information.
We believe the next great play can come from anywhere; we read all submissions and make no judgments based on a playwright’s education or representation.
If you are a fan of our all inclusive policy, join our mailing list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. We regularly filter and curate a variety of interesting, informative content on theatre and parity on social media which we think you’ll enjoy. We also include information and ticket offers to Qualifying Productions – shows that meet the 50% hiring standard for playwrights, directors, and designers. (As a service to the industry, we provide substantial and free support to Qualifying Productions in the form of social media, e-blasts, PR support, and placement in our online directory).
Please see the steps below on how to submit your work. We look forward to reading it.
Founder & Artistic Director
Submitting Your Script
When to Submit
Please note that Parity Productions is currently accepting scripts through April 30th, 2017. After April 30th, submissions will reopen in the fall.
How to Submit
Please submit using the form below. It is requested that all playwrights submit two full-length plays. If two plays have not been completed, then playwrights can submit one full-length play and no less than twenty-five pages of a second play (or alternate form of fiction writing) as a minimum requirement for submission.
All documents must be submitted in PDF format. Your script must be neat and formatted to industry standard (e.g., Sam French, Dramatists Guild, or Final Draft format). Do not put the play title or your name on any page but the title page. Submissions with title or playwright name on any page but the title page will not be read.
What happens after submission?
Once a submission is received, any information as to the playwrights identity will be removed so that the literary team can "blind" read.
What happens if my work is selected?
Playwrights whose work we want to develop or produce will be contacted by Parity Productions directly. Please note that due to the volume of submissions we receive as an active production company, once initial receipt is acknowledged, it will take a minimum of three months to respond to your submission.
