McCarter employs a search rather than submission method when scouting new work. We do not accept submissions. This includes submissions from agents, writers, and other theater artists. We believe a more focused and directed approach benefits both McCarter and the artists we serve.

McCarter is committed to nurturing new plays and artists through commissions, readings, workshops, retreats, and productions. We identify new artists by carefully following the work around us through contact with other theaters, festivals, graduate programs and playwright development organizations, and through conversations with our colleagues around the country. If the project fits our needs and we believe it may be a possible fit for development or production in the next few seasons, we will respond with a request to read the script.
