The Boston New Works Festival is no longer accepting submissions.

Moonbox Productions is pivoting from normal operations for the coming season and launching a new initiative dedicated to the cultivation of new works by local artists.  A request for proposals went out in the fall of 2020 and a diverse panel of judges choose eleven submissions that will be workshopped over the coming year.  The initiative will culminate in a New Works Festival which Moonbox will host during the 2021/2022 theater season at The Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA.
