Original Theatre are excited to launch a brand-new award for early-career playwriters!
The Originals Playwriting Award is the UK’s latest national competition for playwriting. It is a search for compellingly well-told stories capable of entertaining a wide audience. We’re looking for theatre scripts that have not yet been produced, by all UK-based writers who identify at being at the outset of their careers and would benefit from this platform.
We will award four plays with a cash prize and a script-in-hand performance live-streamed and recorded by North South in front of a live studio audience at London’s iconic theatre and television hub, Riverside Studios. The winning play will receive an enhanced cash prize and the potential of a full stage production by Original Theatre.
How do I enter?
Submissions for the Originals Playwriting Award are open until Monday 9 May 2022 10:00.
Short entry requirements
- – Your play should not have been previously produced/performed
- – Your play is written to be performed by 4 actors or less
- – Your play should be no longer than 70 minutes in performance
- – You consider yourself to be at the outset of professional playwrighting career and believe that this award would be transformative.
