Accepts Submissions of: Musicals / Plays / Edgy material /

East West Players has an open play-submission policy. Please note that our mission focuses on the Asian Pacific experience, and the majority of the new works we workshop and produce revolve around Asian and Asian American characters and/or themes. We are interested in both plays and musicals. Works need not be “issue-oriented,” in that race/immigrant issues can be an unspoken component in the work. We are particularly interested in new comedies, musicals, and works that unearth the history of Asians in America.

Manuscripts are now being accepted via email. Scripts should be emailed to Emailed versions of scripts are preferred.

Scripts should be submitted in a PDF format and must include the following:

1. A cover sheet, including your name, address, telephone number, website and email address.
2. A theatrical resume (two pages max) listing major productions, workshops, readings, commissions, publications, awards, etc., as well as education and training information.
3. A 100 word max synopsis of the play.
