Play Submissions / Director Information

For 60+ years, Allens Lane Theater has produced at least 5 plays for each season in our theater. 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 it's doors. Allens Lane Theater invites 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. 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.
