The Thespis Theater Festival is a playwright’s contest designed to offer writers a chance to direct their own, never-before-seen shows, helping them to develop a sense of casting, staging, use of lights and direction. With Thespis, it is our intention to give writers a unique chance to create their vision from the first stroke of their pen to the last scene of their play. Thespis is not only a festival; it’s a competition as well. That means that there are prizes! The winner of Best Play will receive a prize of $3,500. Winner of Best Actor will receive $500. Thespis, as well as our wintertime festival, Venus, is hosted by the, a beautiful, 200-seat proscenium theater in uptown Manhattan.

Only plays from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania will be accepted.

Submissions accepted now.
