Keegan Theatre's Boiler Room Series - Search for New Plays
Please complete this form to submit your new play for consideration.

Keegan Theatre, a professional, non-equity theatre in Washington, DC, is accepting submissions for development during its 2018-2019 Season AND possible inclusion as a full, world premiere production in a future mainstage season. Five pieces will be selected for a workshop process that culminates with a free public staged reading.

The Keegan Theatre believes that Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are essential in the open and honest exploration of the human condition. Through a commitment to these tenets in casting, staffing, and the selection of works, Keegan aims to enrich our world through art and action.

All submissions must be full length plays aligned with the theatre's mission of taking audiences to the vital heart of theatre: extraordinary artists in an intimate setting exploring the human condition.

Submitted work should not have had any significant development or a full production at another theatre. We're looking for truly NEW works here.

Submissions will be assessed by Keegan Theatre's Artistic Development Team and a panel of independent playwrights, directors, and editors. Submissions will remain anonymous to the panel until after they have been selected for further development.

Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Applications that do not address the prompts accurately or fully will not be reviewed.

Thank you for your interest in developing your new play with Keegan Theatre. We look forward to reading your piece!
