The Forge Theater Lab accepts unsolicited manuscripts from playwrights on a rolling basis. All submissions are added to a library of new play scripts that The Forge's staff will use when selecting material for staged readings, workshops, and full productions.
We are a new company that is devoted to developing plays of a range of genres and styles. At this time we are primarily seeking full-length and one-act plays, though ten-minute plays will also be kept in mind for future events. We respond especially to plays that provoke conversation about important contemporary issues.
To submit a manuscript, please email us at email@example.com. Attach the script as a Word or PDF file. On the first or second page, please include a brief description of the play and a list of roles. In the body of your email, describe the play's production history to date, if any. In the case of an adaptation or translation of a copyrighted work, make sure to include permission of the source material's copyright owner. You may also attach your bio, resume, reviews, and any other materials that might help pique our interest in you and your work. We will confirm receipt of your submission, but please be aware that we are not able to respond with personal feedback to every play we receive.
Cast and Crew Positions
The Forge casts productions and events using a combination of auditions and invitations to actors who have worked with us before. Auditions for upcoming productions will be posted on this page when they are announced.
This page will also announce openings for directors, designers, stage managers, technicians, and staff. If you would like to submit your resume and letter of general interest to be kept on file, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
