West Yorkshire Playhouse to open June script submission window

The West Yorkshire Playhouse is excited to discover new writers both locally and across the UK and encourage unsolicited scripts to be sent to us through two reading windows each year.  (Unfortunately we are unable to read unsolicited work outside of these windows.)

Their next Unsolicited Reading Window will be 1- 26 June 2015.

What to submit:  “We want a large, noisy space for new writing at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. A space that nurtures bold, new voices and that supports rich and diverse stories about where we live in Leeds, in Yorkshire and in the world.”

They will endeavour to read everything we are sent, but would ask that you help us by just sending one script per writer and by sending something that we have not seen before.  They are delighted to accept scripts from local writers, UK writers and even international writers, but can only read scripts in English.

How to apply:  Please send your script with a covering letter that details your full name, address, phone number and email. They will not be able to consider your script without this information. Please complete and submit an Equal Opportunities Form (which can be downloaded from their website)

They strongly encourage scripts to be sent by email to scripts@wyp.org.uk

If you do not have access to email scripts can be posted to: Unsolicited Reading Window, Literary Associate, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Quarry Hill, Leeds, LS2 7UP.  (Please note it is not possible for us to return scripts sent by post, please do not send SAE.)

Deadline:  26 June 2015  (*Note: submissions do not open until 1 June 2015)

  1. I have a screenplay about the haunted painting of John Lennon based upon my true story. The reaction has been cold to say the least. Which mystifies me. Also at present I live in los Angeles which narrows chances somewhat by those who only consider british writers resident in the UK.
    Look forward to any comments.

    Thanks. Chris Hampton. British Writer (Actor).

    Tbha nks. Chris hampton.
