Theater Play Submissions

For over 67 years, Allens Lane Theater typically produces 4 main stage plays for each season in our theater space. The plays we produce give Directors, Actors, and Crew a chance to be a part of a season of unique and powerful plays as well as add their voice to a long-standing theater program that has seen thousands of artists pass through its doors.

Allens Lane Theater invites directors and playwrights from the Delaware Valley to submit play proposals for consideration for our 2021-22 season of Main Stage and Readers Theater productions. Off-beat, alternative, culturally and ethnically diverse, contemporary plays and rarely seen classics are welcome.

Only published plays will be considered for our Main Stage. Original unpublished works will be considered for our Readers Theater Program.

Potential directors and playwrights must submit a proposal containing: plot synopsis, any special cast and technical requirements (if required), a reason for choosing the play, along with a personal resume and a non-returnable copy of the script.

Modest stipend is available at the end of the run for the cast, crew, and Director of our Main Stage Series. Readers Theater is volunteer only at this time.

You may email your proposals to or you may hand deliver them to the center (use mail slot after office hours).

We accept submissions from September -December each year for the following season.

Please email us or call us at 215-248-0546 if you have any questions regarding submitting.  Thank you.
