Our Mission: Getting New Plays On Their Feet

At Break A Leg Productions, we’re committed to helping playwrights ‘get a leg up’, so to speak, by literally putting new plays on their feet, often for the very first time as part of a variety of reading series.  But these aren’t just any old readings.  These are fully rehearsed and staged, often with costumes and props, giving playwrights and audiences the opportunity to see new works as they might be presented in full production. Break A Leg follows every performance with a talk back involving playwrights and other invited guests.  BAL also presents a limited number of full productions.

Please read the following instructions carefully.

Effective September 26, 2018, Break A Leg changed our policy regarding play submissions as follows:

Break A Leg Productions will be accepting play synopses and character breakdowns ONLY, together in a single PDF or Word file for a 6 month period annually, January 1st through June 30th.

If we are interested in receiving the full script we will follow up directly.
