  • Playwrights may submit only one full-length play of at least 60 pages.
  • A cast list and brief synopsis must be included.
  • Only PDF files will be accepted.
  • Name and contact info must not appear anywhere on the script (i.e. this is a blind submission process).

One full-length play will receive a cash prize of $500 and a full production in Rover Dramawerks’ Sixteenth Season.

Rover Dramawerks performs in a reconfigurable black box theatre that seats 90-130. Please take this into consideration when presenting your work for consideration. You are also strongly encouraged to check out thier website at to see the types of plays they generally produce.

The judges reserve the right not to award prizes or productions if they feel the caliber of plays received does not warrant a winner.
