City Fox Books is a radical indie publishing press based in East London who are looking to publish a limited series of 6 full-length plays written for stage this summer.

They would like to see plays which are unconventional, and are particularly interested in plays which are:

  • surreal
  • feminist
  • experimental
  • absurdist
  • existentialist
  • politically subversive in nature.
  • Plays can be any genre, but they will not consider anything which could be considered racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic.

Plays must have at least 2 characters.

Plays can be up to 110 pages.

Anyone over the age of 18 can submit, the play must just not have been published before.

Send the full script as a pdf or word document to along with a short author bio and a cover letter with a bit of information about why you wrote the play.

Visit the City Fox Books website for more information about submissions and what they usually publish. 

If successful, your play will be published in a limited edition run. You will receive author copies.

As they are a small press they cannot provide royalties upfront however once 25 copies of the book have been sold via their website, they can offer you 50% royalties on all future copies sold.

DEADLINE: 11.59pm Tuesday 11th July 2023
