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: Bush Theatre accepting scripts through open submission window
Description: The Bush Theatre have opened their 2017 script submission window, and are looking for your full-length unsolicited scripts. The Bush Theatre is committed to discovering the best new plays from playwrights who may be unknown to them and therefore seek unsolicited submissions from playwrights in dedicated script windows.
They advise that you do not send a first draft, and they are not accepting screenplay, proposals for adaptation, new musicals (which we would not develop outside of a commission), one act plays, more than one submission, work in translation or not written in English, and plays which have already received a production. Find out more here.
What’s so great about it? This is a great opportunity for emerging playwrights to build a relationship with one of London’s most renowned theatres – and move a step closer to having their work produced. As champions of new writing, The Bush are supporting writers to take their work to the next level – and to secure a professional production. They are seeking innovative and provocative work that packs a punch. So, if you are a writer who has written a full-length play that does exactly that, this is an unmissable chance to get your work out there – this submission window usually only opens twice each year, so opportunities like this don’t come up every day! You’ve got until 31 October to get your scripts in.
