About Us

Script Submission Policy

The Alley Theatre accepts script submissions from all Texas-based playwrights. We accept scripts from out-of-state writers via agents only. We only produce full-length plays so do not accept submissions of one-acts and short pieces.

Full-length scripts (60 pages or more) written by Texas-based writers may be sent by email to scripts@alleytheatre.org. If you submit a musical, please include demos if you have them but do not feel obligated to create them just to submit. We encourage email submissions but if you would prefer to mail your script, you may send it to:

  • The Literary Department
    The Alley Theatre
    615 Texas Avenue
    Houston, TX 77002

If you submit by mail and would like your materials returned, please submit a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Please allow 6-12 months for the Literary Office to consider and respond to your full script submission. We will get in touch with you once we are ready to respond so there is no need to inquire. Responses may come via email or standard mail.

Submissions need not be large or small in terms of cast size or setting but should be expansive in their theatrical vision of the world. The Alley produces plays, musicals, solo shows and adaptations. Please review this website for a better understanding of The Alley’s mission and production history.

Please note that the Alley Theatre does not provide any comments or suggestions about work that it does not intend to produce.

If you have any questions, need additional information or would like to invite the Literary Office to a performance, please email scripts@alleytheatre.org.

Thank you for your interest in the Alley Theatre.
