Play Submissions and Auditions

Play Submissions

Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we are currently only able to accept full scripts from literary agents.  If you are not currently represented, you may send us a 10-page dialogue sample, demo tracks (if your project is a musical), a complete synopsis and bio/resume; electronic submissions are fine. We will contact you within approximately one month to let you know whether we’d like to review the full script.

For hard copy submissions, mail to:

La Jolla Playhouse
Attn: Director of New Play Development
P.O. Box 12039
La Jolla, CA 92039

Please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want your materials returned.
