Submission Policy

Every year Piven Theatre Workshop explores a new theme and asks artists to submit pieces for our Lab season that center around our theme. We will consider new scripts, works “in process” that are ready to be work-shopped, adaptations, devised work, and other performance pieces. The Lab @ Piven works as an incubation space for these pieces, providing space and support for both artists and works in development from within our community. Submissions are by invitation only to our community of artists, teachers, students, and practitioners. For more information or to be considered to work with us in an upcoming season, please email literary@piventheatre.org.
