Submissions

We are currently accepting submissions for next year's Los Angeles Queer New Works Festival.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

A production for The Commons is just as powerful as it is entertaining. It's brave, breathtaking, and thought-provoking. It's honest. It's vulnerable. It's boldly authentic and unapologetic in the space it takes up. And it showcases the unique and powerful stories that come from every corner of our community. 

We are especially interested in:

  • Fearless new plays and one acts

  • Socially relevant contemporary musicals

  • Ensemble driven pieces

  • Daring solo works

  • Unproduced screenplays

  • Pilots and Web Series centering LGBTQ+ Characters ​

As a general rule, we do not produce:

  • Children's theater

  • Musicals without original scores

  • Literally any story that revolves around a cis/het/white man

The Commons is dedicated to producing urgent, artist-driven works that push the boundaries of modern storytelling. Our artists are fierce and fearless in the pursuit of their own unique voices. Our stories are electric, authentic, vulnerable, and brave.
