Staged Reading Submissions

Calling all playwrights!

Cardboard Cinema Productions is opening submissions for new plays to take part in our Summer Staged Reading Series.

Before submitting, please read the following guidelines and suggestions:

  • Your script is completed and is free of grammatical and spelling errors. 

  • While this is an opportunity to get constructive feedback on your script, we suggest that your submission be at least a second draft of your work. We will only select works that are ready for audience feedback. 

  • There is no limit on the size of cast or representation, but special consideration will be given to small-to-moderate sized shows with a strong representation of POC, LBGT+, and underrepresented characters and themes. 

  • There is no length requirement. We will be considering 2 full-length scripts, as well as a few 10-minute plays. If your production requires a read-time of longer than 2 hours, it is unlikely to be selected for this series.  

  • We will not consider scripts that are published or currently awaiting publishing.
