Attention Community Theater Directors!

What show(s) would you like to bring to PGLT's next season? If you already know what shows you'd like to submit, please send (by email or regular mail) this play submission form, available in PDF or Word format, as soon as you can. For your convenience, you may opt to send it separately from and in advance of the one copy of the script you will provide, or send it with 1 copy of the script, either way is fine. When we receive your 1 copy of the script (very soon we hope!) we will circulate it to PGLT's play selection group, and return it to you after the season is selected.
NOTE: We are only asking for 1 copy of a script this year, so we need to begin passing them around to our 7 group members as soon as possible. We are eager to prolong the reading season by not delaying its start until the October 1st deadline, so please get your script(s) in promptly. Thank you in advance for turning in both your submission form and script way in advance of that October 1st deadline. We appreciate it greatly!

The following shows are those that the PGLT Board has voted on as "plays of great interest." While there is no guarantee that we will produce what is on this list, they have caught our attention as ones we think our audiences will enjoy seeing and will be fun for our casts and production teams. So see if any of these are ones you'd like to pursue with us, or see if they suggest other similar plays you've had in mind -- and know that you are NOT LIMITED to this list!

We of course will consider any plays you have discovered on your own and want to submit in addition to or instead of any of these titles:

The Peacock Season - Otis Bigelow
Beethoven's 10th - Peter Ustinov
Moonlight and Magnolias -Ron Hutchinson
Private Lives - Noel Coward
Nana's Naughty Knickers - Katherine DiSavino
Picasso at the Lapin Agile - Steve Martin
The Great Gatsby - Simon Levy
The Man Who Came to Dinner - Kauffman and Hart
Touch and Go - Derek Benfield
The Curious Savage - John Patrick
Blithe Spirit - Noel Coward
Angel Street (Gaslight) - Patrick Hamilton
August: Osage County - Tracy Letts
Time of My Life - Alan Ayckbourn
Wait Until Dark - Frederick Knott

Please promptly email your submission form to indicate a script will soon follow, or mail your script(s) along with completed submission form(s) to:
