Playwrights

  • Pegasus new mission and vision places more emphasis on new works. We love the writer to be involved in all aspects from development, pre-production, rehearsals and engaging with audiences in scheduled talkbacks. Because of this, we give priority to writers that can commit to being in-residence over the process of pre-production, rehearsals and for production events.

If you’d like to submit a play for consideration. We FIRST encourage You To:

  • See one or more of our productions to see the kind of shows we produce, our style and work approach.
  • Browse our Production History. Invite us to your readings and productions via scripts@pegasustheatrechicago.org
  • Follow the submission guidelines.
