Script Submission Policy

Interested in submitting your work?  The Walnut has supported writers at all steps of the creative process - from inception and developmental staged readings to the production of full world premiere productions.  We read script submissions on a year-round, rolling basis.  

If you have written a play or musical that you feel is appropriate for Walnut Street Theatre's Mainstage, Independence Studio on 3, or the development of our new theatre, please send the following:
• 1-2 page synopsis
• 5-10 page excerpt from the script
• Character breakdown
• Bios for the playwright, composer, lyricist, and any other artistic collaborators
• Demo of music (can be links, flash drive, CD, etc.)

Submissions should be sent to the attention of the Associate Artistic Director, Walnut Street Theatre, 825 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19107.  Playwrights are also welcome to mail invitations to upcoming readings or productions of their work.

Please do not send the full script unsolicited. If, upon reading the synopsis package, there is an interest in the material for production or development, we will request a full script at that time. Responses will only be sent to submissions that include a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard. Please allow up to 6 months for a review and response to your submission.
