NEW PAGES LAB is a reading series designed for playwrights to hear their new plays for the first time and to encourage the development and refinement of their new work.

PLAY SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

PLAYWRIGHTS’ ARENA accepts unsolicited full-length plays from Los Angeles-based playwrights only and that comply with the company’s mission statement.

We do not accept one-acts (less than 70 minutes long), one-person shows or “kitchen sink” dramas. Please submit the entire script with a cover letter and playwright’s bio using the form below.
