Red Bull Theater Short New Play Festival

New York, NY

Each year, Red Bull selects new works of heightened language and classical themes from today’s top established and emerging playwrights. Six brand-new short plays will be selected from a competitive open submission process and and be presented in staged readings alongside the commissioned plays. “‘Restoration’ is a jumping-off point for creative thematic juices. We want writers to be in dialogue with classical theater in a multitude of surprising ways. Brainstorm by reviewing our Mission and take a look through our history of Readings and Productions. Entrants might riff on a classical character, borrow a classical milieu, or create a brand new style of dramatic verse. Finding inspiration from classics beyond the traditional Western canon is encouraged. This year’s selected plays will be performed online in a Zoom-style format – write with that in mind!,” explains Artistic Director Jesse Berger. The deadline is 12 Noon on Monday April 5th.

The act of submitting creative work for a dramatist is as necessary as finishing it. But the process of finding the right submission opportunity can feel overwhelming. This is why, for more than 20 years, the Dramatists Guild has compiled a submissions and opportunities database, and published a full directory of theatres, agents, festivals, contests, workshops, retreats, and other submission opportunities to help make the life of the dramatist an easier one.

This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.  

Only active members or subscribers of the Guild may use the Resource Directory.
