Friday Night Footlights

New York, NY

Members are selected via lottery to showcase new work in front of an audience for free! Participants are given the opportunity to use DG's Zoom channel. DG Footlights™ is a gratis program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public. Writers are expected to build an audience for their work on their own when selected for FNF. The purpose of the DG Footlights™ series is to provide Guild members with an opportunity to gain exposure, to develop their craft, and to obtain credentials. With that in mind, please be sure you are applying with new work that is completed and ready to benefit from a public reading. Plays will be chosen by lottery to ensure that equal opportunity is offered to anyone who might be interested in submitting.

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.
