Seeking playwrights and Directors to submit proposals

For over 67 years, Allens Lane Theater has produced between 4-5 plays for each season in our theater space. The plays we produce gives 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 playwrights, and directors from the Delaware Valley to submit play proposals for its upcoming seasons. Off-beat, alternative, culturally and ethnically diverse, contemporary plays and rarely seen classics are welcome. Only published plays will be considered for Main Stage production. However, non published and original plays can be submitted for our Readers Theater program.  Potential directors 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.

A small honorarium is available at the end of the run for the cast, crew, and Director.

You may email proposals ( or you may hand deliver them to the center (use mail slot after office hours) at 601 W Allens Lane, 19119.

Deadline for submissions is January 1st for each year.
