It’s been an absolute pleasure reading the wonderful submissions we received from our members this year! The talent amongst you is nothing short of incredible and as theatre navigates through difficult times, it’s inspiring to know that the future of new writing is in such good hands. If we can take one thing from the submission window, it’s to encourage you to keep writing; theatre really does need your stories, your voices, and your talent – so keep going!
As those who submitted will know, scripts were read twice and a feedback report was given to each and every writer. Whilst limited resources mean that only a small number of writers could be selected for further development, we hope that you all found your feedback valuable and that it helps you to redraft and take your work to the next level!
We’d also like to say a huge thank you to our reading team, who have worked so hard to read such a large number of plays and write individual feedback.
Without further adieu, here’s a list of the writers we’re going to be working with in the year ahead:
