All the Rage Theatre accepting submissions (female writers)

All the Rage Theatre are presenting Seize the Stage, a festival of new theatre by women at Rich Mix on 19th April 2014.

With the aim to foster new collaborations between women in London, up to 6 playwrights will be partnered with 6 directors (offering them master classes, some space and actors to work with) culminating in a rehearsed reading of their work. The day itself will involve discussions and Q&As with industry guests, as well as rehearsed readings by actors of the 6 new pieces of work.


  • Female playwrights and directors based in London.
  • You need to be available all day on 19th April 2014.
  • You need to be willing to take part in up to 6 workshops during the 6 weeks prior to the festival, which will be either at weekends or weekday evenings (Exact dates TBC with participants).
  • Please apply either as a playwright or a director.

What to submit in your application:

  • An idea for a new play. Include a brief synopsis and/or your vision for the piece (200 words max).
