The Dramatists Guild has created this fully searchable database (affectionately known as the RDO - Resource Directory Online) for their members. Using this tool DG members are able to bookmark listings, set up email reminders and search the resources by a plethora of criteria. It is now even easier for you to submit your play or musical to hundreds of resource listings.

O’Neill Theater Center Deadline dates

Through our Partners Program, we’re happy to work in close association with a number of iconic development organizations throughout the country. Once such Partner is the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
Through a series of software problems, the O’Neill’s deadline for submission has been erroneously reported on the DG website in the Resource Directory, but accurately reported in our e-newsletters. Just to be clear, the deadline for the National Playwrights Conference is this Friday, October 16, 2015 and the deadline for the National Music Theater Conference is November 23, 2015.
