Seattle Rep is embarking on an ambitious undertaking: three commission projects that will support the development of over 20 new plays over the next decade — more than the Rep has ever commissioned all at once.
Reimagining the Anthropocene: 20 playwrights will each write a play inspired by life in our moment by the year 2030.
A commission program uniquely designed to offer development lab time for leading directors in our field.
Public Works Commission
We are thrilled to announce the commission of our own Public Works musical adaptation by Cheryl L. West.
Elizabeth George Foundation
Seattle Rep recently received a grant through the Elizabeth George Foundation that will fully fund three commissions from emerging writers.
See what additional playwrights are working on through our New Works Program.

Seattle Rep does not accept unsolicited scripts. We read material from a variety of sources including agent recommendations, colleague theater seasons, the Kilroys List, and more. We are dedicated to considering work by BIPOC artists and commit to that work representing at least half of the scripts read by our season planning committee.
