An Other Theater Company is calling for submissions of full-length, original plays by transgender playwrights which focus on some aspect of the transgender experience and feature at least one transgender character. 

Plays will be read and considered by a panel consisting of AOTC’s Artistic Directors and a cohort of local transgender theater artists.

Three finalists will be selected to receive readings at An Other Theater Company during October 2019 (UPDATE: Now Late February/Early March 2020). After these readings, one will be selected to receive a full production as part of An Other Theater Company’s 2020-2021 season for which playwright will receive a $500 stipend to be paid upon opening night of the production’s run.

UPDATE: While An Other Theater Company is especially interested in playwrights local to Utah, this call for submission is open to playwrights from all locations. (Note: no travel stipends are available.)


The entry period has been delayed from 8/1/19 through 8/17/19 to 10/1/19 through 10/31/19. Application will be available on this page beginning 10/1/19.  You may sign up below for updates on this call for scripts.

As entries will be blind-read by a committee, please leave your name and any identifying factors off of all scripts. 

Updated Submission Requirements:

  • Playwright must identify as trans.

  • Play must focus on some aspect of the transgender experience and feature at least one trans character.

  • Play may not require more than 8 actors. (More characters, with suggested doubling, is okay.)

  • Play must be full-length. (No fewer than 35 pages. No more than 100.)

  • While not a requirement, a play’s stageability will be heavily considered.

What to Submit:

  • Script in PDF format with Title.  No information identifying the playwright may appear on this copy of the script.

An Other Theatre Company acknowledges that our theatre stands on the traditional lands of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute) nation. White settlers seized the land colonially known as Provo from the Ute People and other neighboring tribes through the unratified and unfulfilled Treaty of Spanish Fork in 1865, in exchange for basic needs and rights, under the direction of Brigham Young.


We also recognize the stolen lives of the enslaved Africans brought to Utah by early white settlers, and acknowledge that their subjugation and forced labor helped to establish the cities that exist in this area today.


We strive to de-colonize Utah theatre through careful season selection, casting choices, diversity in leadership and creative roles, and ongoing conversation and education.
