Paines Plough – accepting ongoing submissions

Paines Plough have an open submissions policy, here are all the details:

 Not only do we accept unsolicited scripts, we love receiving them. We read every play we’re sent and consider it for production.

If you think we’ll like your play, upload it using the form on our website. Then within ten weeks we’ll let you know whether we want to produce it or not.

Please note that when George and James are in production it can take a little longer for us to get back to you. We can only accept scripts by form so please don’t send us hard copies – we’re trying to save trees.

We do workshops all over the country too, so let us know where you’re based and we’ll get in touch when we’re local.

Here’s a link to the page on the site 

Deadline: none

Source: direct contact.

    I was very hurt when I received a call about a year ago from you saying you wanted to discuss my play. It was a Friday night. I ran the following Monday only to be told you were rejecting my play. I’ve recovered and am working on a new play which I’ve finished it. Of course I understand you’re as free to reject it as I am to send it but please don’t raise my hopes by saying you want to discuss my work when all you are going to say is “no”.

      Sorry to hear this! However, if you want to be sure that Paines Plough receives your comment, please contact them directly. We simply re-post these opportunities for your convenience so we can’t guarantee that the organisers will see any of the comments made on our posts.

      All the best,
