Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Hampstead Theatre Submission Window open
Description: Hampstead Theatre is looking for original plays and promising writers. They want to read bold stories, writing that takes risks and plays that speak to a modern audience. If the voice is refreshing, or if the play is delivered with power, rigour or wit, they want to read it. Their current submission window is open until 31 December 2015 for full length plays of more than 50 pages.
So, what’s so great about it? Well, we always like to keep you aware of when the big guns are accepting submissions and the Hampstead is definitely up there amongst the most prestigious of new writing theatres. While there are no promises of what submitting to the Hampstead could lead to, if you’ve got a finished play, it’s always worth taking the plunge and making contact with theatres. The Hampstead have some quite clear guidelines on what they like to receive so do check out their website before submitting to check if your work fits in with their vision. The submissions window is only open for another month or so, so take this as a final nudge to get that script polished!
