The Collective NY seeks submissions for the fourth annual Collective:10. Original 10-minute plays will be selected to premiere in a fully produced Fall run at a prominent Manhattan venue and published in The Collective:10 Play Anthology, Vol. 4.   

Plays should engage truthful and behavior-driven storytelling. We are seeking new plays that have not been produced or published, nor planned for production or publication, prior to submission. Read the complete submission guidelines.

For more information on The Collective's mission click here.

The Collective:10, with its inaugural production in October 2013 followed by the second annual production in 2014 and third annual production in 2015, had sold out runs at The McGinn/Cazale Theatre and Teatro Círculo, respectively, and included guest directors Elizabeth Kemp, Jacqueline Knapp, Ellen Burstyn, Susan Aston, Greg Naughton, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Richard Masur. All three volumes of the published Anthology launched with events at the renowned Drama Book Shop in New York City and continue to be bestsellers at the store. The anthologies are also sold worldwide on Amazon.

TO REGISTER:  Simply click below and complete the form. (If you plan to submit more than one play, you must register each play separately, and receive an unique order number.) An order confirmation email will be sent to you with details for submitting your play. Registration deadline is 11:59pm on APRIL 1, 2016. REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

NOTE: In the final step, you will be asked for billing information. There is NO FEE, so a credit card number is NOT required to complete your registration. Please complete all other billing information and submit.

The Collective NY is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 production company. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue to produce top-quality theatre and film, and to continue our development of emerging writers. Every $10 = one seat that we can make available for FREE to someone who cannot afford a ticket to quality professional theatre or does not know that such opportunities exist. We would rather perform for an enthusiastic and engaged audience who have not paid a dime than to have one empty seat. Your tax-deductible contribution, however large or small, will help ensure that we can continue our mission.
