Return Address




Theatre’s Address





To Whom It May Concern:


My name is Joe Playwright and I am currently a student at Arizona State University.  I am writing in hopes that you will consider my new play Catastrophe for your Festival of Short Plays.  Catastrophe, a short play chronicling a young writer’s first attempt to write a musical, has been discussed in a workshop setting at ASU and had a staged reading in spring 2006, but has not yet had a professional production.


At ASU I have been fortunate to have had several workshop productions of shorter works as well as multiple staged readings of my full-length plays.  I also recently had a successful production of my one-act The Short at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.


Along with this letter I have included a resume, two copies of the play, and a bio, as you requested on your website.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need anything else from me.  I can be reached at the above address, by phone at 480-806-1234 or via email at 


Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
