Box of Tricks Theatre development programme for North-West England based playwrights

Box of Tricks Theatre, based in Manchester, run several opportunities for writers including a PlayMakers Network.

PlayBox 2021

Their upcoming PlayBox 2021 is an open-call opportunity for North-West England based playwrights

Box of Tricks is looking to find three early-career North West playwrights for the next cycle of their flagship talent development programme PlayBox in 2021.

Selected playwrights will be paid £1000 each to take part in a year-long talent development attachment during which time they will write a brand new play with dramaturgical support from Box of Tricks, develop their piece during a workshop day with actors and receive a public rehearsed reading of their play.

Box of Tricks especially welcomes submissions from playwrights from under-represented groups. If an aspect of your identity – disability, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and/or lower socio-economic background – means your voice isn’t being heard and your story isn’t being told on contemporary stages, they want to hear from you.

The PlayBox Submission Window will be open from Monday 6 July – Monday 31 August 2020.

Deadline: Monday 31st August 2020.
