September 7, 2023 (Sag Harbor, NY)—Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts is excited to announce the opening of submissions for the 10th Annual Title Wave: 2024 New Works Festival on October 1, 2023. Bay Street Theater will accept full-length plays from writers of all backgrounds. The Title Wave: New Works Festival is scheduled to take place in May 2024, at Bay Street Theater. As is tradition, the festival will introduce four new full-length plays to the Bay Street stage over the course of the weekend.

The 10th Annual Title Wave: 2023 New Works Festival celebrates new and exciting theatrical work in Sag Harbor. This year’s festival marks a decade of a program that was begun by Artistic Director Scott Schwartz and Associate Artistic Director Will Pomerantz.

Each festival is a valuable opportunity for playwrights to see their work through a rehearsal and into a public presentation with the help of a professional director and actors. Bay Street Theater is proud to support this work and to engage our audiences in the process through readings, talkbacks, and open discussions with the artists. 

A decade is a momentous landmark for the festival of new plays at Bay Street,” says Literary Manager, Hope Villanueva. “I’m honored to be a part of a long tradition of supporting playwrights and offering them a place where their work can grow.”
Interested playwrights should go to www.baystreet.org for details of the submission procedures. Submissions will open on October 1, 2023, and will close when a maximum of 300 plays have been submitted, or no later than October 31, 2023. Late submissions will not be accepted.

Title Wave: The 2024 New Works Festival is sponsored, in part, by the Town of Southampton and The Neuwirth Foundation Inc
