Theatre Neo is a dedicated core of professional actors, writers and directors who passionately reveal the beauty and powerful impact of live theatre in the Los Angeles community. Established in 1997, Neo produces stimulating new works along with classic American theatre. Through both our staged productions as well as community collaborations, Neo fulfills its members’ artistic goals and dreams, while audiences are entertained and given the opportunity to experience a wide range of life emotions.
Play Submissions

We at Theatre Neo are always looking for new plays of any length. We prefer new material or pieces that do not require royalties, but we do also consider published plays that have not been produced recently in the LA area. If the playwright wishes feedback from the Reading Committee, he or she should request this in writing at the time of submission; consideration sometimes takes several months. You may submit plays with one attachment (plays will considered with one actor “attached” to a specific role or with a director already part of the project). If the playwright is available, this attachment must meet with the writer’s approval. The play will then be read with the attached actor or director included as part of the consideration process.

Plays may be submitted for consideration by company members but we are looking for work from any source. We are currently considering short (10-minute) plays, longer one-acts (40 minutes – 1 hour), as well as full-length plays. Because we are an acting company, we tend to put an emphasis on productions that will utilize as many people as possible. Full length plays with larger casts, therefore, probably fit our needs better than a two or three character full-length.

Plays are initially read by our play reading committee. If the committee is interested in the material it will be given a formal staged reading by company members as part of our Play Reading Series. The company members who attend the readings then rate the work on a numeric scale to give an overall idea of the company’s interest. If a play is highly rated by the company, it will be considered for production.

Actors in the company are encouraged to find work they think is appropriate for the company and submit it themselves. An actor may be considered “attached” to a project, but ONLY if that is worked out in advance with the playwright before submitting the play.

Mailing address for play submissions:
Theatre Neo
PO Box 48553
Los Angeles, CA 90048

PLEASE NOTE:
(a) Write “For Consideration” on the envelope
(b) We do not consider full-length plays with casts smaller than 8 characters
(c) If you wish the play to be returned to you, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope
(d) If you wish feedback or confirmation of receipt, please include a self-addressed, stamped postcard
(e) Feedback and response may take some time; we are an all-volunteer company
(f) If you know anyone in the company, submit it through that person instead; this may speed up the process
