Conch Shell Productions

Flushing, NY

At Conch Shell Productions (CSP), our mission is to infuse a new Caribbean-American and Caribbean Diaspora voices into the American theater and film industry. To do so, we create a space to develop, workshop and produce new plays and screenplays.

We believe that art can and should provoke social change. Our productions create an opportunity for diverse audiences to explore and celebrate the unique ethnic/cultural diversity of the 28 multi-lingual Caribbean cultures that have immigrated to other nations seeking new opportunities.

Our seasons include both readings and full productions of new works. Our presentations include Hear Her Call Caribbean-American Women's Theater Festival, Conch Shell New Works Series, #BluelightSeries (a virtual reading series), as well as fully produced full length works, as well as collaborative endeavors (Reset Theater Coalition).

Conch Shell Productions is a Queens, New York-based, fiscally sponsored organization, and a member of the Alliance of Residence Theatres/NY.

Resource Directory Logo
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.
