Wordsmyth accepting play submissions

Houston, TX

Wordsmyth Theater (Houston, TX) is now accepting one-act or two-act play submissions for our New Play Reading Series for 2020. Six plays will be selected, with one slot reserved for a Houston, TX playwright and another slot reserved for a bilingual play — any language. Each selected playwright will be paired with a director and cast. The play will then be read in front of an audience and the audience will be invited to stay after for a moderated discussion of the play. We do expect the playwright to be in attendance for the reading. Play must not have been produced. Submission must be a minimum of 40 pages long and have a minimum run time of 40 minutes. No musicals, children’s plays, or one-person plays.
