Script Submissions

Hartford Stage accepts plays ONLY from literary agents, except in the case of Connecticut playwrights, who may send a 10pp script selection. Beyond that, we are unable to accept scripts not submitted by an agent and such submissions will either be recycled or (if an SASE is enclosed) returned unread.  To get a better sense of the types of plays we are interested in please look at our Production History as well as our AETNA New Voices and Brand:NEW Festival pages. While Hartford Stage is deeply committed to new writing, our resources don’t permit us to read unsolicited scripts; we do however, maintain strong connections with play development centers, literary agents, and other theatres around the country which develop new work.

Materials should be sent to:

Elizabeth Williamson
Director of New Play Development
Hartford Stage
50 Church St.
Hartford CT 06103


Residents of the state of Connecticut may submit 10 PAGES of a play along with a cv, by mail, to:
