Laura Reads New Plays by Yolanda V. Fundora

Thank you playwrights! We have reached our limit of 300 plays

for this season. Please check in next season

for guidelines and submission dates.

Play Submissions


Are you a playwright with an original new play? We’d love to read it! Your play could be selected for a reading in our “Meet the Artist” series in May. Or it might even end up on our mainstage!

SUBMISSIONS: We accept scripts from November 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023, or until we reach our cap of 300. Please DO NOT SUBMIT plays from January  through October. Responses are made annually in late spring.


Also, please DO NOT SUBMIT BLIND COPIES of your script. Make sure your name and email address are on the script itself. We use your contact info in the script to reply to your submission. If you submit a blind copy, your script will not be considered.

Many thanks for sharing your time and talents.
