Submit New Works

The Overtime Theater Seeks New Plays

The Overtime Theater in San Antonio, Texas is looking for NEW unproduced COMEDY, SCI-FI, HORROR, FANTASY, IRREVERANT, etc. plays from playwrights based in Texas. We have a history for offbeat and unique productions, so all stories will be considered.

We are looking for submissions of one act and full-length plays to be produced for our 2025 season in The Gregg Barrios Theater (Overtime’s main stage). Due to space limitations, we can accommodate a maximum of 10 performers per production. 

The Overtime Theater only produces new works and prefers submissions from writers based in Texas to keep our mission of providing live, local, and original theatre. The Overtime Theater is an all-volunteer organization and compensates playwrights with one equal share of donations from our tip jar, the Love Bucket, at the end of the run.

Please fill out the Google Form to include your script attachment for consideration for our 2025 season. Please format your submissions in the Dramatist Guild Standard Format and send it as a Word or PDF file. We accept submissions year-round, but any submissions to be considered for our 2024/2025 season should be received by 11:59 pm CST on September 30, 2023.

Please send any questions to and we will respond as soon as possible.
