Call for Director/Play Proposals 2015-16 Season

Deadline:  September 19, 2014 


Silver Spring Stage presents the best in contemporary plays by some of the freshest, most exciting playwrights working today. We choose a dazzling variety of compelling, intellectual, progressive works.  It’s “downtown theater” at an affordable price. We are looking for directors with strong skills and strong vision to bring these works to life. The Stage presents a season of 7 full productions and one holiday show, and we try to offer wonderful opportunities for actors, designers and directors.

We are seeking play proposals from directors who are interested in working with Silver Spring Stage in the 2015-16 season.  We will accept up to two director proposals per director. (The Stage also presents a summer one-act festival, but submissions for that are handled separately. This notice is for our mainstage season of full-length plays only.)


In memoriam - Barry Hoffman

Silver Spring Stage is very sad to share the news that our friend, former chairperson, and gifted director Barry Hoffman passed from life on July 25, 2014 after bravely fighting cancer, but not from our memories and our hearts.
