If you don’t have an electronic version of your play, or if this form is malfunctioning, please give us a call at 352-BE IN ART or send an email to submissions AT We’ll figure something out 🙂

If you are an out-of-town author, with no ties to our theater, (and no definitive reason for submitting to our theater, specifically), please refrain from submitting; we’re a volunteer-run organization, and as much as we would love to read your work, we simply don’t have the time to read everything that comes in (we wish we did!).

If you are a local playwright, please consider submitting to our Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase. If your show has already been featured in Homegrown, please submit it here!

If you’d like to submit more than one work for consideration, please limit it to three; we want to give every submission the time it deserves.

Thank you– we look forward to reading your submission!

If this form doesn’t work, please contact us at marketing AT acrosstown DOT org so we can fix the issue; google and javascript don’t always play well together. Thank you so much 🙂
