Play Submissions

The 2022 Valdez Theatre Conference (June 11-18) is now accepting submissions for its developmental Play Lab. Selected plays will have a single rehearsal for a public reading the following day, followed by a feedback session with three panelists as well as a private session with one panelist. The Conference is an excellent opportunity to learn and grow as an artist while making new friends and collaborators in a stunning landscape. Activities include readings and responses for over fifty plays, classes, performances, the late-night Valdez Theatre Fringe, and a cruise to Shoup Glacier.

Accepted authors are responsible for travel to Valdez, Alaska, and registering for the Conference ($100).

From writers who have never attended before and are not Alaskan, we are now only accepting 20 and 30 minute plays. The plan was originally to not take more than 150 (which we have received), but we have room for more short work, and we love new participants, so… 

Submission Guidelines

  • Plays may be 20-120 minutes in length (20-30 for new people).
