Novus Theatre call out for new writing

Novus theatre invite writers to send in new/developing work which could be work shopped and developed in a research and development.

In their words:

“We are looking to work with new writers on our R&D/small scale tour programme. Our first piece, The Reverse Is Also True (Mark Illis & Stephen May), was work shopped in Bedford. It was then performed as a script in hand performance for an audience at our pop-up arts centre in 2014.

We then worked with both Mark and Stephen to develop the piece further before programming a small national tour. This took place over 5 venues across the UK, playing to sell out crowds and finishing with two dates in London.

Both of these pieces were funded by Arts Council England.

We are looking to work with new writers to repeat this process and hopefully work together with them to create an exciting new piece to tour in future”.

How to apply: Submissions should be sent to Artistic Director Sam Turton at They are happy to accept a fully developed script or extracts of a developing work.

Deadline: 9 October 2016
