The Bush Theatre has now opened its’ summer submission window. They will be accepting full length plays until 1st September.
The Bush recommends that before you submit, you take a look at their current season, the archive and familiarise yourself with their work.
“We don’t just want to receive any play; we’re looking for those plays to produce at the Bush that fit our programming attitude of compelling stories with contemporary bite and from unique perspectives that will start a conversation with our audience. We want to discover plays which reflect the vibrancy of British culture now and engage with new ideas and stories.”

How to Submit: send scripts to firstname.lastname@example.org, attaching a cover sheet.
They are unable to receive or read unsolicited scripts that are:
• sent by post
• without a cover sheet
• not full-length plays (1 hour +)
• previously produced
• from writers from outside of the UK and Ireland
• sent outside the submissions windows
• that have been previously submitted
What happens next: they will read all eligible plays and will contact any writer who has submitted a play that they would like to continue to develop. This may involve starting a conversation with the playwright directly, building towards further development as appropriate.
They are unable to offer feedback on plays that they are not intending to develop towards production, although they will contact you to let you know when they have read your script and with an outcome of the reading process.
Deadline: 1st September 2013 at 5pm
