Now Accepting General Submissions
To keep our finger on the pulse of what’s going on in our world and the world of theatre, we accept samples of plays pertaining to our mission.
A 30-page sample of your play
A 200-word synopsis of your play
Any development or production history your play has had
Some tips before you submit:
Take a look at our mission.
While the personal is political, InterAct focuses on plays that use the personal to explore the political. All My Sons is an InterAct play. Long Day’s Journey Into Night is not.
Consider your genre.
InterAct does not currently produce musicals or theatre for young audiences.
Include a specific character breakdown.
Be honest about how many actors the play requires, especially if it’s not clear from the character list. Keep in mind that InterAct rarely produces plays with more than six actors.
You don’t have to sell us in your synopsis.
To give context to your sample, we want to know about the shape of the full piece: major plot points, important characters and general themes. We don’t need the one- to two-sentence buzzword pitch; your sample will sell us.
Flip the Script on Play Submissions
InterAct regularly uses the New Play Exchange, powered by the National New Play Network, to find new work that fits our mission.
The New Play Exchange is the world’s largest digital library of scripts by living writers. Designed and built with the needs of the entire new play sector in mind, the New Play Exchange serves writers, producers, directors, artistic directors, literary managers, dramaturgs, publishers, agents, actors, professors, students, and even fans of theatre.
The mission of the New Play Exchange is to provide an open, egalitarian platform on which writers all over the world can share their work and others can discover that work.
