Send in Your Work!

Sanctuary: Playwrights Theatre wants to read your work.

Our actors read new work in a lab setting at our Big Studio in NYC twice a month. Work that we read in a lab may be considered for a production. We require the playwright be present at these readings. As much as we welcome writers from out of the NY tri-state area, we do not provide a travel allowance.

For consideration, please email *all* of the following to: [email protected]

  • Your play in PDF format. We accept completed works, works in progress, full length and short plays and scenes. We don’t read plays in MS-Word or other formats. Send a PDF.
  • A cover letter stating the current development history of this work and what your goals are for it.
  • Your resume or CV


  • Send the piece that pushes your theatrical vision to its furthest extent.
  • Be patient; we will get back to you as soon as we read your work!
