Script Submissions:
San Jose Repertory Theatre is looking for full-length plays that are “robustly entertaining and intellectually challenging.” With a great story – particularly unique modes of storytelling. As San Jose Rep is situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, plays that deal with science and technology are appealing to the theater's audience, but stays away from history lessons. Looking for plays that are timely and political, but not didactic. Also looking for plays with music and small (cast/band) musicals.
Does not accept unsolicited manuscripts.
Does not accept one acts.
Note that the turnaround time to read a play is 6–8 months.
All submissions should be sent electronically, preferably in PDF form, to Associate Artistic Director.
