National Queer Theater Call for Submissions 2024

National Queer Theater is now accepting submissions for new queer theater and performance. We are looking for new shows that push the boundaries of queer performance, entertain, enlighten, educate, and fuel social change.

While not always the case, our collective of readers tends to be more interested in forward-thinking intersectional work, and work by and about underrepresented identities and subsets of the queer community. We are less interested in adaptations of classical work. Up to four shows will be selected and given performances as staged readings or full productions in New York City between 2025-2026.

Submission Criteria:

- Plays, musicals, or other performances that address LGBTQ+ themes or issues.

- Shows that have not previously been fully-produced in New York.

- Proposals for concerts, drag, dance-theater, or other storytelling formats are welcome. - Please submit a PDF of a 10-page excerpt of your writing or a project proposal.

- Deadline to submit your piece is June 29th at 11:59 pm EST.

- Multiple submissions are not allowed.

Please email with any questions.
