Play Submissions

Atlantic Theater Company accepts only solicited material, agent submissions, and work/proposals from its ensemble. Our season is comprised of four mainstage productions of new plays and revivals, and two second stage productions with an emphasis on new work. The season is complemented by a development series of readings and workshops, and we have an active commissioning program. In an effort to refocus our submissions policy, and attend to the large number of solicited scripts we received each season, we will no longer be accepting samples or inquiries. Playwrights are urged to consult The Dramatists Sourcebook and individual organizations’ websites for complete information on submission policies at American theaters.
