The Last Frontier Theatre Conference is an annual conference on American Theatre held in Valdez, Alaska that focuses on playwrighting. Continually held each year since 1993, the conference puts out a call for play submissions, requesting playwrights from around the country to send one-act plays and full-length plays for consideration. Selected plays are read by actors in front of an audience, then each play is critiqued by professionals, academics in theatre, and audience members.

The Conference provides a series of workshops, symposia, theatrical productions, and panels at which participants have the opportunity to study with award-winning playwrights, directors, producers, and actors, as well as scholars and critics. The Call for Plays is the first step toward the conference’s mission to develop new voices and provide students with the opportunity to interact in a workshop setting with some of the greatest luminaries in the American Theatre.
