Submission Guidelines for new works...

Barefoot Theatre Company is currently in search of new and provocative contemporary plays for their upcoming season of readings and workshops. With over 65 productions since 1999, Barefoot Theatre Company is committed to the development of new plays and the fostering of playwrights; emerging and established. Past works we've developed and produced have been seen at such noted theaters as: The Bouwerie Lane Theater, Ensemble Studio Theatre, Boston Theatre Marathon, Gloucester Stage Company, Theatre Row Theatres and most notably The Cherry Lane Theatre, among others, as well as being published under Samuel French Play Publishers, Inc.

before submitting PLEASE visit our website and get to know us and the work we do and have done.

For our bareNaked Reading Series, we are looking for plays that have never had a public presentation even in the format of a reading.

For our bareNaked Workshop Series, we are in search of plays that are near completion but still in the development stage.

Please keep in mind that we are NOT a producing house, we are a collaborative ensemble of actors, directors, playwrights and designers and we are looking to develop and produce new works with playwrights.

When submitting your play, please be sure to include the following:

1. Include a brief synopsis of your play including its production and development history.
2. Provide a character breakdown (i.e. number of men, number of women, ages, etc)
3. List any technical requirements (anything out of the ordinary).
4. An updated bio and current contact information.
Please send your submissions to:

DEADLINE: July 10th.

Electronic submissions are strongly preferred; if you cannot submit the proposal electronically, please contact us for further instructions. For more information, contact the address above.


In 1999, Barefoot Theatre Company was founded by a multicultural group of artists determined to produce vital, thought-provoking works, both new and existing. We embrace the importance of the collaborative process, nurture our ensemble commitment, and continue to learn from the younger generations we mentor.
