We are looking to support writers who:
Were born, raised and/or live in the North of England
Have already completed at least one full-length professional production/commission (60+ mins)
Could work well with us as a company (please see our Artistic Policy for more info).
We particularly encourage playwrights whose identity is currently under-represented in theatre to apply. Particularly writers who might have less access to opportunities due to barriers such as class, disability, gender, or ethnicity.
To apply for both the Year Long Writer Support, and the Writer Care Package, please complete the two forms below, and then email us your play script to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are using this as an opportunity to meet with writers so we can get to know them and their work better and to see if we might work well together in the future. If you want to get involved please send us a draft of a full play as an example of your work (please don't send us TV or Film scripts).
We are not asking for people to write something original for this submission window. Existing scripts- including ones submitted to other companies/venues/awards etc, are welcome. This will help us understand how we can best collaborate in the future/what support we can give.
Applications are open until Saturday 12th September 12noon.
Once you've completed both forms, please email us your script to with the subject line Script Submission and <your name>.
