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

We want to make things you’ve never seen before.

You find us. We find you.

On top of our writing competitions’ submissions, every year we receive around 2000 scripts. We read and consider them all.

And every year we’re invited to 1000s of workshops, rehearsed readings or full productions from emerging artists around the UK. We see as many of them as we possibly can.

Now then, if you’ve got something for us…



We accept via email at submissions@sohotheatre.com. Because who doesn’t want to save some trees.

Before you do, if you can, we recommend you:

  • come see shows in each of our spaces,
  • hang out in our bar, and
  • have a think about which of our three performance spaces would suit your script or show. Plus how long you’d hope your run to be (we do anything from one night to eight week runs).

We meet regularly to go over new submissions. Due to the amount we receive (hurrah and nice one), it’s impossible to get back to everyone (sorry). So, if you’ve not heard from us after a few months it may be that now’s just not the right time to take your project forward. Fingers crossed for you that we do though. Obviously.



To invite us to your workshop, rehearsed reading or production, email coverage@sohotheatre.com. Our priorities are new writing, new adaptations, comedy and cabaret.
