Playful is EnActe's new works initiative.

As a hub for the performing arts in the Bay Area, EnActe welcomes submissions from all playwrights and showmakers. Scripts and concepts that meet our guidelines will proceed to a table read as applicable, and from there on to one of these paths:

  • a play-in-progress workshop
  • a staged reading as part of our reading series
  • a full production in a future EnActe season

We are seeking vivid, insightful plays with a South Asian origin or association that challenge audiences and inspire conversation.

Let's get the conversation started!

Use this form to send us a synopsis of your project. We'll reach out to you to talk about how we can best help you develop your work!
Tell us about your project and attach any relevant documents such as a script.

Past Playful Participants:

A family drama about assimilation, immigration, and the pursuit of happiness, Swapna follows an Indian-American family whose bonds are tested when twin siblings take diverging paths.
