New Play Submissions

PlayMakers accepts new plays by request or by agent-submission only. We are specifically interested in unproduced full-length plays that provide substantive opportunities for our world-class intergenerational acting company.

As a way to get to know new and undiscovered voices, we invite blind submissions during the months of April and May; please reach out to us then at if you have a new work you’d like us to consider.

International Thomas Wolfe Playwrighting Competition

From June through August 2019, PlayMakers is soliciting unproduced scripts that speak to the rich legacy of one of North Carolina’s most famous writers: Thomas Wolfe. The prize will be awarded to a writer who captures Wolfe’s mix of highly original, poetic language with personal stories rooted in geographic place. Winner will receive a $7,500 cash prize and development support from PlayMakers.
