Graeae is “a force for change in world-class theatre, boldly placing Deaf and disabled actors centre stage and challenging preconceptions”.
Their script submission window allows them to connect with Deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse playwrights who are new to them.
This opportunity is not for writers they are already talking to. They already know Graeae are committed to building long-term relationships with playwrights, developing and championing their talent. This is for writers who are not having those conversations with Graeae yet.
Although it is unlikely that any script sent to them through the window will end up being produced by Graeae, every one of the plays submitted will receive detailed feedback. For some of you, this will mark the beginning of a lasting relationship with the company.
(Graeae are one of the organisations that we work with in finding and choosing writers to take part in the BBC Writersroom Writers’ Access Group.)
Deadline for submissions: 30 June 2021
