37 Plays- a new national playwriting project led by the RSC and their partner theatres

37 Plays is a new national playwriting project led by the RSC and their partner theatres. They are seeking the stories of our times: the comedies, the tragedies and the untold histories. The chosen 37 plays will be performed script-in-hand across the UK and online in autumn 2023.

All of the 37 plays that are selected will be awarded a fee for publication, performance and/or broadcast. Any submission subsequently commissioned by one of the partner theatres for production will subject to usual commission processes approved by the Writer’s Guild of Great Britain.



  • Anyone living in the United Kingdom may enter a play and there is no fee to enter.

  • Your play must be predominantly in English, with a translation provided for any text not in the English language.

  • Your play must be a complete original story, not a sample of a story or an adaptation of a story. It must not have had a professional production or be under commission at the time of submission.
  • You must submit you play according to your age: age 11 and under, 12-17 years, or 18+. For plays written by more than one person, you can either nominate a lead writer or use the average age of writers.
