Pegasus PlayLab

What is Pegasus PlayLab?

Pegasus PlayLab is a new play festival at the University of Central Florida dedicated to developing new plays. We are soliciting four full-length by MFA Playwriting candidates or other emerging playwrights.We will workshop three of these plays, which will culminate in a series of staged readings. The fourth play will be mounted as a full production. 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 is a reimagining of the traditional Theatre UCF summer season. The festival will span six weeks from 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 small stipend, and the opportunity to develop your play with industry professionals at one of the largest universities in the country.

What should I submit?

Please submit a draft of one full-length play to by Friday, November 10 by 5 pm EST. In separate attachments, please include:

  • Playwright name and contact information
  • Play synopsis and character breakdown
  • Statement describing goals for play development
  • Resume with any other relevant information (professional website, NPX account, etc.)
  • Agent Information, if applicable

If you have any questions, please email
