Submissions for our 2020 season are now closed. Thank you to all who submitted.

The Acadiana Repertory Theatre is committed to serve playwrights as a place where they feel they can develop work with a company that has a desire to help in the growth of both the playwright and the play. We strive to create a safe, creative, open environment for our playwrights and, using our own experience, along with the experiences of some of our friends from across the country, we seek to help playwrights create and develop shows that have the best chance of a long life of production. Please note: If your play is produced by Acadiana Rep and you desire to come down during the rehearsal process or for the production, playwrights are responsible for incurring travel costs. 

Through developmental readings and full productions and soon, the possibilities of residences, we hope to help, through working with the amazing playwrights we come in contact with, the voices of new american playwrights be heard.
