INDEPENDENT THEATER COMPANIES

These companies either tour, rent space as needed, or are in temporary residence at a specific theater named in parentheses. As such, they are typically not the folks to call about rentals.
Submitting manuscripts to theatrical companies: Before sending a manuscript to a theatrical company, writers should send a query composed of a synopsis, cast breakdown, a few pages of sample dialogue, the playwright's résumé, and information about if or when and where the play has been performed. Include a SASE.
