Avalanche is committed to fostering the innovative and unconventional voices in the Chicago theatre community, by developing new plays and playwrights. Through a series of workshop readings and feedback sessions, we hope to foster the growth of new plays in a constructive and encouraging environment, and to offer a platform for new playwrights to have their work seen.

We are specifically looking for plays that will benefit from a development process.


We only accept plays from Chicago-area playwrights at this time.

To submit your play, please fill out the submission form by clicking the submit button below. Make sure you have the following items prepared:

  • A 10 page sample of your script 

  • A brief, 3-5 sentence synopsis

  • Character breakdown

Please send any questions to

We look forward to reading your work!
