Play Submission Guidelines
Unicorn Theatre accepts scripts on an on-going, year-round basis, which allows us an opportunity to search for, develop and produce new plays that meet the overall criteria of the Unicorn Theatre and the specific needs of a regular season. Please send the manuscript (Attention: Literary Department) with the following information, even if you have already sent the same information with your initial inquiry:
- A cover letter
- A brief bio / resume
- A short synopsis of the play
- A complete, descriptive character breakdown
- A SAPC if you want us to acknowledge receipt of the script
***AS A RESULT OF CHANGES TO REGULATIONS OF THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE, WE NO LONGER RETURN SCRIPTS***
In general, we look for non-musical, issue-oriented, thought-provoking plays set in contemporary times (post 1950s). We stipulate a cast limit of ten actors. You must note any double-casting in the character breakdown. Scripts must be in an easy-to-read format and firmly bound. All plays submitted must be original, unpublished scripts, which have not had a professional production.
Response time, depending on the number of scripts we receive, may vary from six to twelve months.
All scripts submitted for consideration will be handled with care: however, the Unicorn Theatre does not accept responsibility for lost or damaged manuscripts.
