PLAYWRIGHTS’ FESTIVAL

The Trustus Playwrights’ Festival began at Trustus Theatre in 1988. This festival accepts submissions nationally from playwrights seeking to develop their script for a full main stage production at Trustus Theatre. Past winners include David Lindsay-Abaire, Jon Tuttle, Deborah Breevort, Stephen Belber, Andrea Lepcico, and Sarah Hammond (to name a few).

Trustus Theatre selects one new play annually as the winner of the Trustus Playwrights’ Festival. Submissions should be non-musical plays that have small casts (6 actors or less) and modest design needs (no fly systems or pyrotechnics please). The festival is welcoming to experimental works. The runner-up will also receive a public reading at Trustus.
