New Jersey's foremost supporter of new play development
Premiere Stages Play Festival 2022 submissions are now closed. Check back in the summer of 2022!
Premiere’s flagship new play program is a regional competition that develops up to five exciting new plays each year. One play is later fully produced and another is workshopped to further hone the script. The Festival has supported the work of artists like Dominique Morisseau, Keith Josef Adkins, Rogelio Martinez, Vincent Delaney, Tammy Ryan, and many more.
