Play submissions

How to submit your play for consideration

23 Miles South accepts submissions of full length and one act plays with a focus on female or other marginalized people as main characters and a primarily female cast. We especially need plays for young actors.  Send your play, synopsis and character descriptions to with "play submission" in the subject line.   If selected for production, playwright will receive a royalty payment.



Sign up to hear about upcoming auditions, events and productions. We don't like spammy, ad filled email either. We will only send you email about 23 Miles South, and would never dream of sharing or selling your email address.
