Play Club 2020!

It’s back!


Following the success of last year’s inaugural Play Club, we’re bringing the project back for 2020 with 4 of the most exciting plays of the last 10 years, as well as another rehearsed reading event at the end of the year!

Every other month, starting in March, we’ll be setting a play for everyone to read. From this, we challenge you to write a 10 page short play inspired by what you’ve read.

After each submission window, we’ll then select a winner from that round of submissions who can look forward to having their play read by actors at the Old Red Lion at the final members meet-up of 2020!

As always, if you aren’t selected the first time round – never fear! As we’ll be reading 4 plays this year, which means you’ve got 4 chances to get your shiny new short play selected.

The first play will be announced on Monday 16 March, with the submission window opening a few weeks after that. Anyone is more than welcome to read along with us, but to submit your inspired short play you must be a LPW member. Check below for details about how to become one…

How to sign up

Play submissions for this project are exclusively for our members (you can sign up for less than 4 quid though and you’ll be helping to support the next generation of playwrights if you do!)

Members, check your emails for #PlayClub updates! They’ll automatically be sent to your inbox as and when things are ready to share. We’ll share details of how to submit your plays when the submission window opens in April.

You’re also more than welcome to just read the plays and join in some discussion with us about them on the members Facebook group! We’ll open up a discussion forum on there at the same time we open for submissions, so don’t feel you have to write a play, you’re absolutely fine to just read too.

If you’re not a member yet, sign up now and follow the link as above.

Here’s to reading and writing!

    Hi George,
    I’m an LPW member, I’m logged in – I’d love to start reading the Play Club plays – but I can’t work out how I get to read them.
    Can you help, please?
    Thank you!
    Charming font, too – what font are you using for these comments?
    Thanks again,
    Virginia Rose

      Hi Virginia,

      We don’t actually provide the plays to read (something we are working on trying to achieve, we promise) – but we do try to choose texts that are easily available from major bookstores.

      Hope that helps,
