dg resource directory
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.

    Mission: Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America.
  • The foundation of our company is “Pass It On.” During our tenure, we pass the baton of Lead Producing Playwright from artist-to-artist, giving each playwright the chance to navigate the company using their individual artistic vision. Each group of Welders produces one show by each member playwright then passes the company (from board to bank account) on to a new group of artists. That group will produce one show by each member playwright then pass the company on again to a new group of DC-area artists, creating what we hope to be an ever-evolving platform for new play development right here...
  • The 10 Minute Taste at the 4208 Group is a modern take on dinner theater. Instead of sitting through a full-length musical, or Shakespearean classic, five 10-minute plays are presented while guests dine in a contemporary establishment. At The 4208 Group we focus on shining a light on women artists of color. We also work with organizations that showcase and/or empower women artists of color. We are a company that works to cultivate the growth and development of women artists of color.
  • In this three year program, playwrights collaborate with actors and directors to shape and reshape their works in classrooms, readings and workshops. They will come in contact with a variety of dramaturgical techniques for the development of dramatic action, character, language and structure. The focus is on a professional and practical approach to scriptwriting, culminating in the writing of three or more rehearsal-ready works for the stage. Opportunities for lab workshops of plays in process will be made available to the playwrights, beginning in the second semester.
