To provide Ohio playwrights with a venue to hear their work read and to receive constructive audience feedback.
To provide APT with the opportunity to establish artistic relationships with playwrights.

A play that has no paid production history and that has not had a reading before an APT audience or a theatre audience in Columbus, Ohio.

As standard theatre protocol, APT gives the playwright the opportunity to distance themselves from their work and experience the interpretation of their script through the lens of a director and actors. To that end, the playwright shall not perform or direct in APT NEW WORKS readings.

A reading of a specific work shall be limited to one reading only.

A playwright should submit his/her work only when they consider it to be a polished draft that can benefit from minimal revisions suggested through audience feedback.

Scripts should be submitted in standard Dramatists Guild “production” format and include a character description page.
Preference will be given to works with general audience appeal. We consider both the comedy and drama genres.

A brief playwright bio (300 words or less) should be included with a submission.

The playwright should provide a brief synopsis (150 words or less) of the play.

Scripts should be sent in PDF format to submissions@aportabletheatre.
