New Play Development 

In a new commitment to developing work, Talk Is Free Theatre Company will now be accepting unsolicited scripts from playwrights. We encourage artists of all backgrounds to submit and are interested in writing from anywhere around the world, so long as the work has been translated to English.

We will accept submissions of scripts that have been produced, although we are more interested in scripts that have not been produced on a professional level.

Submissions are reviewed by Associate Artistic Producer, Jakob Ehman. Each project will receive a response, but please be patient and note we do not guarantee a critique of your script or dramaturgical feedback.

Steps to develop/produce new works will be decided on a case-to-case basis. If we are interested in the work, we will contact you to discuss next steps.

  • Please provide script, bio, resume and outline of the play’s developmental or production history.
  • For book of musicals, please include any information about musical style, but do not attach song recordings.
  • We will only review one script per writer per season.
  • The subject line of email submissions should read “New Play Submission- Your Name”


Please send submissions to:

Jakob Ehman
Associate Artistic Producer
