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.

At that time, fewer than 20% of plays produced by the American mainstream theatre establishment in any given year were written by women. Although change was afoot, in 2017 industry watchdog Theatre Communications Group noted “when it comes to the status of female playwrights in the American theatre, the long arc of history is bending toward parity-but so slowly, almost imperceptibly, that you’d be forgiven for despairing.” But recent data is more optimistic.

To create opportunities where none existed. ‍ In 2016, Rhyme Combinator staged their first live reading of ZipSloth the Musical to a sold-out crowd, written and developed by Beau Lewis, Jodie Ellis, Brent Schulkin, and Jason Tan. The project started as a weekly freestyle rap session, building steam with amazing collaborators in music, tech, and the arts - who all saw meaning in getting vulnerable and celebrating the grit of Bay Area innovators and...

  • The vision continues to evolve, most recently with the opening of a new theater in the Gaia Building in Berkeley’s thriving art district and in its developing relationships with other Bay Area theaters to present Marsh productions which include the Luther Burbank Center in Santa Rosa, the Dance Palace in Point Reyes, and the Sonoma Community Center. So why is it called The Marsh? The name, The Marsh, a breeding ground for new performance, came out of several months Stephanie Weisman spent living in a house on stilts on the Delaware Bay. The teeming interplay of the marsh terrain and its vast...
