Headwaters New Play Festival

Submission Guidelines 

What kind of plays are we looking for? The Headwaters program is the source of new plays of the West: plays set in the current, historic, or mystic western United States; plays by playwrights originally from or living in the West; plays that reflect the diverse cultures and experiences of the West; the American urban/rural divide and plays that re-imagine what “West” means.

To be considered for the Headwaters New Play Festival, a play must never have had a professional production and the playwright must be available to attend the workshop week (typically the end of August). Check back here in November for specific dates for our 2018 festival.

Submission deadline is February 18th, 2018.

Any plays submitted after this date, will go into consideration for our 2019 Festival. Responses will be sent out sometime in May of 2018.

CRT will provide travel, housing, and a food stipend for the selected playwrights. Plays read at the festival will be considered for full production in CRT’s 2019 season.
