We have now temporary closed for submissions whilst we are running our Verity Bargate Award, any submissions sent during this time will not be logged or read so please do not send anything to us until we re-open in October 2017. If you wish to enter the Verity Bargate Award, information can be found here

Plays can be sent to Applications open 31st May and close midday on 5th July

We are looking for unique and unheard voices – from all backgrounds, attitudes and places.

There are no thematic, political or philosophical constraints and though we love to produce a writers’ first play, we have no objection to your second, third or fiftieth.

We are looking for work that:

• Can move people to laugh, cry, argue, protest, celebrate and act
• Resonates in the world today
• Is inherently theatrical and live
• Is risk-taking, brave and visionary

We only accept submissions via email. Please send your script as a PDF or Word attachment to
Your play will go directly to our Artistic team.

We consider every submission for production or for further development opportunities. Although there are a limited number of slots on our stages, we engage with writers throughout the year through workshops, readings, notes sessions and other opportunities.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to respond directly to every submission. Therefore, we will only be in contact if we are interested and able to take things forward with you.

We sincerely thank you for sending us your work and we wish you the very best.
