— SCRIPT PUB SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED
SUBMISSION WINDOW OPENS ON SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 —
Are you a playwright with a new full-length thing (between, say, 75 and 100-ish pages) that you want to hear read aloud by talented actors? Are you ready to take the next step in your play’s development? Well we want to hear from you! Coffee & Whiskey Productions is now accepting submissions on a rolling basis for the Coffee & Whiskey Script Pub, our play reading series. We’re interested in everything– if it’s unproduced and entertaining, send it our way. We have no restrictions on content, no problems with your goddamned potty mouth, and don’t mind genre work. We only want to make some of the best freakin’ theatre out there, whatever form it takes. We especially delight in all things funny, off-beat, and just plain weird, but we’re ready to tackle whatever you’ve got. Sci-fi? No problem! Magical Realism? Can do! Gritty Family Drama? Bring it! Wagnerian Epic about Joe Paterno descending the Nine Levels of Nittany Lion Hell*? Sure, why the hell not!
(Oh, one very important thing to note: we can’t do musicals at this time. If your play has a song or two, we can probably work with it, but full on musical theatre is out. Sorry!)
Please send all script submissions electronically, to scripts [at] coffeeandwhiskeyproductions [dot] com; use the subject line “Script Pub Submission: [title of the play]”, so we know what to do with it. Be sure to include a synopsis of the play, as well as a brief bio and contact information. We prefer the PDF format, but if you have some kind of ethical issue with that, just let us know and we’ll see what we can finagle. We try to respond as quickly as possible to all submissions, but give us 8 weeks (well, 8-sh; call it two months) to review your work. If it’s been more than a couple of months and you haven’t heard back from us, please send us a friendly follow up inquiry. And if you have any questions at all about the process, the Script Pub, or Coffee & Whiskey in general, feel free to shoot us an email, or contact us on Facebook.
Good Luck, and see you at the Script Pub!
