How To Submit So Your Plays Get Produced

A workshop with playwright Stephen Kaplan 

Thursday, August 20, 7pm-9pm

FREE for Luna playwriting students (former and current); $5 general


How to Submit So Your Plays Get Produced is a virtual workshop led by award-winning playwright and Dramatists Guild Northeastern Regional Council Member Stephen Kaplan. The workshop will talk about best practices in sharing your work, networking, record keeping, and more.  

This workshop is designed to inspire writers to market their work more effectively. You hear it all the time: the only difference between playwrights that have been produced and playwrights that haven't is that produced playwrights get their work seen by the decision-makers. That translates to submissions and networking, a daunting task we'd like to simplify. This workshop covers resources for finding opportunities, tips for easier submission, success stories from cold calls, and remote networking.

Stephen Kaplan’s plays include: Tracy Jones (upcoming: Williamston Theatre); Death Defying (NJ Rep/Theatre Brut); Branwell (and the other Brontës) (upcoming: Loft Ensemble, Blue Room; semi-finalist: O’Neill); Community (finalist: Seven Devils; semi-finalist: Premiere Stages); Exquisite Potential (finalist: Woodward/Newman); A Real Boy (59E59 Theatre; semi-finalist: PlayPenn, Ashland, FutureFest and MTWorks’ Newborn Festival); una casa/a home (finalist: Landing Theatre’s New American Voices, Route 66 New Play Development); For Unto Us (published by DPS); In Mrs. Baker’s Room (Commission: Abingdon); The Seventh Son (semi-finalist: Ronald M Ruble New Play Festival). He is a Dramatists Guild member and serves as the Northeastern Regional Representative for the DG National Council. Visit for more info.
