You wrote a play.

We want to read it.

softFocus invites you to apply for consideration in our accelerator on a rolling basis.

Powered by a network of top theater producers, artists, and strategists, the softFocus accelerator provides artistic development and a heavily-marketed New York premiere within 6 months time, introducing you and your unproduced play to a New York culture-going audience while we're all still young.

[You can read about our first premiere here.]

So, we're looking for scripts that are inherently theatrical, have a strong sense of voice, and have not been produced in New York City (yet). Something that sings the song in your heart. We're committed to building a creative and dynamic collective of artists that celebrates individual differences and diversity — towards this goal, we encourage writers of all backgrounds and levels of experience.

If this all sounds good to you, please send your unproduced script with the subject line "Submission to softFocus Accelerator" to  We'll be accepting plays on a rolling basis. If your play is accepted into the accelerator, we will be in touch. We can't wait to read!
