Does the piece have to be finished? - We accept works at various staged of completion. Perhaps only the first act of your play is finished and you want to hear it with actors in a staged reading before continuing.

As a director, do I have to be attached to a piece? - No, you can submit as a director to be chosen for a piece.
Performance Venue? - The Dare Tactic seeks to find spaces suitable for each piece. We love to find spaces that enhance the pieces. Past spaces: White Horse Tavern, Melville Gallery, ShapeShifter Lab, St. Pauls Theatre, the Paradise Factory, Pace School of Performing Arts, and more.
Is it paid? - While we would love to pay our amazing writers and directors, we do not have the ability to do so yet. In the meantime, we offer space and provide production needs including set, tickets, marketing, and house management.
Can I pick which type of performance? Staged Reading? Workshop? Full Production? - We want to offer our resources in the most effective way possible. While we certainly take production value preferences into consideration there are several factors in determining this such as limitations of performance space, rehearsal times, and other demands of the production.
