The Space: Scriptspace Now Accepting Submissions

The Space are looking for early drafts of one act or full length plays, accepting work that hasn’t been previously read (to an audience), workshopped or performed. They are open for submissions until 28th March and we will select a number of plays for readings taking place in July and August.

They are particularly looking for original, exciting and relevant work that shows strong writing ability, has clarity of purpose and the potential to be a successful stage production. 

If your piece is selected for a reading you would be required to attend at your own expense (dates to be arranged). For this reason, they are currently only accepting applications from UK-based playwrights.

How to submit: 

Submit scripts as an attachment (either .pdf or .doc) in an email to ScriptSpace with “submission” as the subject title. They can only accept one play submission per playwright.

Also let them know a bit about your background and experience as a writer. This doesn’t have to be a formal CV or cover letter (although those are fine if you have them!) – they’d just like to know a bit more about you, why and how you write and what your work’s been like so far.

Deadline: 28th March at 5pm

    I am an Englishman living in West Cork. I have family in the south east of England. It would be just as easy for me to get to the Isle of dogs, if by any chance I was chosen, as it would be for a playwright from Newcastle or Totnes. Certainly just as easy as living in Belfast. How come I cannot enter?

      Hi Rupert,

      I’d recommend getting in touch with the organisers directly with any questions as we have simply reposted this opportunity for convenience.
