Thanks for considering BNT as a potential home for your story. We have a small literary team, but we are working to keep the door open to as many voices as possible. In particular, we are seeking works that fit our mission and have not been produced to-date in Chicago. Please take a look at the following guidelines if you wish to submit your work.
For writers without representation: We ask that you send (1) a ten-page sample of the play, (2) a cast breakdown, (3) and a one page synopsis of your play. We’d love to see your resume as well, though past credits are not necessary.
For writers with representation: We accept full-length plays and musicals if sent directly from the playwright’s agent or manager. Feel free to include a 1-page synopsis, though it is not required.
Please allow us up to three months of response time, and follow the guidelines as noted above to ensure that we can read your work in a timely fashion. We look forward to seeing what you send it!
