Seattle Rep has an extremely successful commission-to-production rate since 2009.

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 and female identifying/trans/non-binary artists and commit to that work representing at least half of the scripts read by our season planning committee.
