Pegasus PlayLab

What is Pegasus PlayLab?

Pegasus PlayLab is a new play festival at the University of Central Florida dedicated to developing new works by MFA Playwriting candidates or emerging playwrights. We are soliciting three full-length plays, which we will rehearse for two weeks in collaboration with the playwright and subsequently present as workshop productions. There is a possibility of one of the selected plays being mounted as a full production in a future season.
As an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, UCF encourages all qualified applicants to apply, including women, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and members of traditionally underrepresented populations.

When is Pegasus PlayLab?

The Pegasus PlayLab spans six weeks starting mid-May through the end of June. Selected playwrights are expected to commit to a two-week residency within that timeframe. We will provide transportation, housing, a stipend, and the opportunity to develop your play with industry professionals at one of the largest universities in the country, UCF.

What should I submit?

Please submit a draft of a full-length play to by November 1, 2018.  In a separate word document, please include:

  • Playwright name
  • Synopsis of the play
  • Brief character breakdown
  • List of any former readings, workshops and/ or productions of this play.
  • Description of your goals for working on this play
  • Resume with any other relevant information (professional website, NPX account, etc.)
If you have any questions, please email
