Script Submission Policy


Script Submission Policy

We make every effort to stay informed about professional playwrights as well as with plays in production and development across the country. Script submissions are accepted from literary agents, literary managers, play development centres, artistic directors, and playwrights with work familiar to our artistic staff. We do not respond to unsolicited scripts.

To propose a script submission for production consideration or development, please send the following materials by email in PDF:

  • A one-paragraph synopsis of the play
  • Background about its development to date
  • A cast breakdown
  • Bios of the playwright(s), and key creative collaborators (if applicable)
  • If available, a short excerpt from the script (10 pages max.)
  • Musical projects should also include a link to an online source for selected songs

If we are interested in further information, a full length script will be requested upon review of these materials.

Scripts and development proposals will not receive dramaturgical feedback. Due to the high volume of scripts received and amount of activity during our production season, response time can take several months.

Please send script submissions to compass [at] grandtheatre [dot] com with “submission” in the subject line.

For play development inquiries please contact Megan Watson, Artistic Associate, at 519-672-9030 ext. 223 or mwatson [at] grandtheatre [dot] com
