Local Lab is Boulder, Colorado's premier 3-day new play festival of new works. We offer fully-staged concert readings, master class workshops, and the opportunity for playwrights and attendees to participate in conversations that help move new plays toward full productions. Local Lab plays have gone on to be fully-produced all across the country.
The submission period for Local Lab 2018 play submissions is May 15, 2017 through August 15, 2017.
What do we accept?
Your play must be un-produced, a non-musical, and full-length.
When is the submission deadline?
Local Theater Company will begin accepting plays for consideration in our 2018 festival on May 15, 2017. The submission deadline is August 15, 2017.
Who may submit?
If you are a resident of Colorado, you can submit. If you are a literary agent or manager and received an invitation from us, you may also submit a play for your playwright. Please do NOT submit new drafts of previously submitted plays.
Is there an entry fee?
Nope. This is a program for playwrights! And an opportunity for our community to participate in the play creation process.
How many per playwright scripts can I submit?
Just one per playwright. Pick your best.
Who do I send the script to?

Then what happens?
Three plays will be selected for a professionally staged reading (with the writer's participation) at Local Lab in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. These three plays will be considered for a full production, too. Past Local Lab plays have gone on to have full productions at Local Theater Company, critically-acclaimed shows Off-Broadway in New York City, and around the country at some of our most respected regional theaters.
