Yale Drama Series Rules and Submission Guidelines

PLEASE HOLD YOUR SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2020 YALE DRAMA SERIES COMPETITION.
THE 2021 COMPETITION OPENS JUNE 1, 2020 WITH ESTEEMED PLAYWRIGHT PAULA VOGEL AS JUDGE.

The Yale Drama Series is taking a hiatus for the upcoming 2020 competition due to unanticipated changes in our judge’s schedule. We sincerely thank Ayad Akhtar for his dedication for the past two years and for choosing amazing winners—Leah Nanako Winkler and Lily Padilla. We enthusiastically welcome our next judge, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paula Vogel, who will generously serve as judge for the 2021 and 2022 competitions.

We are extremely appreciative of the judges who have contributed to the success of the Yale Drama Series. We look forward to receiving submissions from emerging playwrights next year, from June 1, 2020 - August 15, 2020.
