New work is important to Rorschach Theatre. We have produced countless regional and world premieres including the world premieres of Anna Ziegler’s The MinotaurJason Grote’s This Storm is What We Call Progress, Jennifer Maisel’s birds and Fengar Gael’s The Gallerist.  

We encourage submissions in one of two ways:
1) A synopsis and 10-page dialogue sample or
2) An agent submission of a full script

With all submissions please include a resume and cover letter that also summarized the play’s developmental history. Because of the large volume of submissions we receive we cannot guarantee response.

We are especially interested in plays that are epic in scope but intimate in their exploration of human psychology. Plays that include elements of mythology and the supernatural while remaining contemporary in their themes and settings. Plays that might be described as magic realism. Plays that might be described by some literary managers as “impossible.” Please no domestic comedies or kitchen sink dramas.
