September will mark the opening of the 26th season of The Living Room Series, our New Play Development program which embodies The Blank’s commitment to developing new work by both established and emerging writers. Submissions by women, playwrights of color, and other under-represented
voices are strongly encouraged.
The Living Room Series takes place on Monday evenings at the 2nd Stage Theater in Hollywood between Labor Day and Memorial Day. The Living Room Series offers a week-long collaborative rehearsal process for the playwright, director and actors to explore and refine the play before presenting it to an audience. The performances are minimally staged, with actors carrying scripts, and are a wonderful opportunity for the playwright to get a sense of the play’s full potential.
The Blank accepts plays for consideration for our Living Room Series (workshops of new plays) via Submittable. Submissions by women, playwrights of color, and other under-represented
voices are strongly encouraged. The Blank is firmly committed to
supporting gender parity and diversity.
Submissions will be accepted from April 15 - May 15 through this form only.
- Submission must be full-length (one-acts or ten-minutes will not be considered at this time).
- Submission must not have received a full production. Submissions that have received full productions, even if they have undergone significant post-production revisions, will not be considered. The Blank considers staged readings and academic productions exceptions to this rule.
- If a script was declined for a prior season, please note what significant revisions have been made (in your Artistic Statement).
- Playwrights may only submit one script per submission period.
