Submission procedure

Silk Road Theatre Project welcomes playwrights of Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean backgrounds to submit full-length plays that have not been produced in the Chicago area. Although we appreciate the fact that many non-Silk Road playwrights write plays with Silk Road content, often with very compelling and brilliant results, we do not, at this time, produce their work.

To be considered, a play must be relevant to a people (or peoples) of the Silk Road and/or their Diaspora community(ies). Furthermore, the play's protagonist must be of an Asian, Middle Eastern, or Mediterranean background.

Please include a resume with production history when mailing your script. Scripts will not be returned. No e-mail submissions accepted.

Types of Material

We are interested in dramas, comedies, and musicals. Solo pieces and performance art pieces are also welcome. Submissions will be considered for either a staged reading or a production.

Special Interests Politically charged comedies and dramas featuring protagonists from the Historic Silk Road.
Facilities 99 Seat Tier N theatre, located in the heart of Chicago's Loop theatre district
Production Considerations NA
Best Submission Time NA
Response Time 3 to 6 months.
