Submit Your Script

For submitting to the Our Home States festival, please visit the Our Home States page.

For all other scripts:

Submitting a script to Broom Street Theater is a 2-step process.

  1. Fill out the form below.
  2. Email your script to

We accept submissions on a year-round rolling basis.

We read submissions in infrequent bursts of frenzied mania.

We respond to submissions when we have free time between producing our current schedule, planning our next production(s), building maintenance, our day jobs, and occasionally seeing our loved ones.

The process can be glacially slow. We’re sorry about that. Mr. Petty was right. The waiting is the hardest part.

The good news is, you don’t have to wait for us. Submit anywhere and everywhere else. Produce it in your living room. Keep making your art!

You’re a hero for finishing your script – and we wish we could produce them all.

Tell Us About Your Script

  • If this is a new submission, use today’s date. If you’re cataloguing an old submission, please enter the date you originally emailed your script.
  • Plot Synopsis/ settings/ themes… etc. Give us your best elevator pitch here.
  • Give us some hashtags, so that when we go looking through the database for “#comedy” or “#LGBTQ” or “#SurrealistSoapOpera” or – we’ll find your play.
  • Disclaimer: We’re a small, black box space in Madison, WI making art out of love and duct tape and not much else. We wish we could pay royalties to our playwrights, but we’re not in a position to. If we’re interested in producing your play, we’ll have a potential director contact you and make sure that you’re a good fit. We appreciate that you took the time to submit your work to us, and we wish you the very best of luck. Keep writing, keep submitting your work everywhere, and keep filling the world with good art!

Please remember to email your script to!
