Laura Reads New Plays by Yolanda V. Fundora

Play Submissions

ATTENTION PLAYWRIGHTS: We have reached our limit of play submissions for Spring 2023. Thank you so much, and we look forward to reading your work next season!


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 January 31, 2024, or until we reach our cap of 300. Please DO NOT SUBMIT plays from February  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.
