A Denver-based theatre company focused on pushing the boundaries of the stage, cultivating young artists, and bringing attention to notable causes.
Pipedream Productions believes in transcending the ordinary dimensions of the stage and living boldly beyond limits. Pipedream strives to shatter misconceptions and bring to life the stories of the underrepresented. The forgotten. The misunderstood.
Pipedream stages productions unlike anything else in Denver and takes pleasure in choosing works where conventional performer and spectator roles are redefined. Pipedream focuses on working with young actors, designers, playwrights, and directors in order to foster new artists within the professional community. Prepare to take risks and dive into the unknown. Prepare to live beyond delusion.
Pipedream Productions was founded in 2016 and produced its premiere production, 4.48 Psychosis, in the summer of the same year. Pipedream has since produced the critically acclaimed 2017 run of White Rabbit Red Rabbit involving 21 of Denver's finest actors, and the first annual production of Piping Hot New Works--a collection of new short plays from accomplished playwrights around the globe.

Pipedream Productions presents: Piping Hot New Works–In the Dark
We are looking for short play submissions (10-15 minutes MAX).
Easy enough? Well, there's a catch. The audience will be blindfolded; therefore, your play will be read to an audience in total darkness. If your play does not take this into consideration, we will not accept your submission. Get creative, get wacky, and show us what you've got!
Please provide the following contact information in the body of your email: full name, address, and email.
The plays themselves should not contain any contact information. Any contact info should be in the body of the email—do not put your name on the script itself. Your script will not be considered if it contains your contact information.
The subject line for your submission should read as follows: PHNW Dark Submission
Preference will be given to scripts with fewer than five characters. All plays must be unpublished.
The deadline for submissions is August 31 at 11:59pm MST. We will cut off submissions once we've reached 200, so the sooner the better. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Please send scripts in PDF format to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All playwrights will receive two complimentary tickets to a performance of their choosing.
You will receive an email by September 15th letting you know whether or not your script has been chosen.
**We are also always open to general submissions. If you think you have a piece that's perfect for us, please feel free to email it. Be sure to make the subject "General Submission" to ensure it doesn't get buried.**
We look forward to reading your work.
