Call for Script Submissions - Athena Project Plays In Progress Series 2021





Athena Project--located in Denver, Colorado--is proud to announce the call for submissions for its Plays In Progress Series (PIPS). Three to six new plays will be selected based on a blind submission process and given a dramaturg, director, and cast for presentation. This PIP Series is an opportunity for new plays to be developed in the model of a Table Reading which includes approximately 3-5 hours of video conference time with the dramaturg, director, and playwright and 1.5 hours of readthrough/rehearsal before performance. The dramaturg will moderate a talkback following the public performance. Over the course of approximately April and May 2021, conferences will take place with rehearsal and presentation to take place in early June in Denver at a location to be determined. Scripts are accepted from March 1 - April 15, 2020. (Athena Project reserves the right to close submissions before April 15, 2020.)


  • Deadline to submit all materials is midnight, April 15, 2020 or when submissions reach 275.
  • Three - six finalists will be selected by October 2020
  • Directors and Dramaturgs will be selected by April 2021
