Next Stage Press has reopened our Submissions to everyone!!

A few dos and don’ts.

DO NOT SUBMIT 10-MINUTE PLAYS!! (They are too short to publish alone) – The submission will be deleted.

ALSO, DON’T SUBMIT PLAYS THAT ARE UNDER 30 PAGES. (Unless they have a companion piece that can be grouped with them) – If there is no companion piece, the submission will be deleted.

DO NOT SEND AN INQUIRY ABOUT THE SUBMISSION. If you haven’t heard from us after 8 months, it is safe to assume it doesn’t fit our needs…but feel free to submit again.

DO NOT SUBMIT THE PLAY VIA EMAIL!!!

IT MUST COME THROUGH THIS PORTAL!!

Thank you in advance for the submission.

Any email we receive concerning things we have covered here will be deleted.

Best Submission Process

I submit a lot of my plays to theatre companies, but this was by far the quickest and easiest format to use to submit one’s work. Thank you.

Thank You!

So great to have a publisher that will consider plays whether or not they’ve been produced yet. Less focus on marketing (“it must have quotable reviews from productions”) and more on the quality of the scripts.

SEAMLESS!

My play, Breakfast With Gandhi, is going to be published by Next Stage Press and I am delighted to submit my award-winning play, Sweet Texas Reckoning, as well! The submission process is seamless and the communication with NSP, awesome!

Considerate

Submitting to Next Stage Press requires a few simple things. It is easy to accomplish, takes little time and seems to be considerate of playwrights–and that’s a critical element.

It's About The Play

Thanks for the easy submission process. Nice to know that the “work” is the important focus rather than who the playwright is.
Thanks, Next Stage Press! Much appreciated.
