Unexpected Stage Seeks Submissions for Spring 2021 Reading Series

Unexpected Stage Company – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional theater company based in Montgomery County, MD – seeks submissions for an outdoor socially-distanced series of play readings to be held in late Spring 2021.

We are looking for fresh voices and new plays with an eye toward possible future productions.

Unexpected aims to create a culture of equity, access and inclusion, and would like to provide a platform for playwrights of color through this reading series.

In line with Unexpected Stage’s mission to explore the intimacies and intricacies of the human experience, please submit a bio and the first ten pages of your play for consideration, to info@unexpectedstage.org.

Please send any questions to that same email address or call 301-337-8290.

Thank you!
