The Script Lab program provides playwrights with access to script critiquing services from our Resident Playwrights and artistic staff. Works from all levels of expertise are welcomed. Submitted plays may be of any length, type, form, or genre.
Members of Chicago Dramatists' Network Playwright program are entitled to free critiques each year; one per year for Chicago Network members and two per year for National Network members. For non-members, critiques may be purchased at a cost of $150 per critique. Each playwright may submit one play at a time. The response time is approximately six weeks, depending on how many scripts are currently in the queue.
To submit a play for a Script Lab critique, please e-mail your script in pdf format to email@example.com. When submitting a script, you may request a specific reader/critiquer, and your request will be taken into consideration.
