OPEN SCRIPT SUBMISSIONS

We’re thrilled to be back accepting unsolicited scripts following the theatre’s Covid-19 closure. 

 

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We’re looking for original plays that speak to a modern audience.

HOW IT WORKS

We accept scripts from writers all year round. 

All submissions must be from writers based in the UK.

All plays sent to us must be unperformed.

We can only accept one play per writer.

All plays must be full length.

Your play must be written in the English language.

We are unable to accept short plays or adaptations.

If you submitted a script between March and November 2020, please resubmit as those were neither read nor necessarily retained

 

HOW TO SUBMIT

All plays must be sent as a pdf attachment via email to scripts@hampsteadtheatre.com.

Please also include a brief synopsis and any other information you’d like us to know. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR PLAY IS SUBMITTED

When you have sent your play you will receive an acknowledgment email from us to say that it has arrived. You will hear from us within three months to say whether we are able to go any further with your script. We are unable to provide critical feedback on the plays that we receive, however we will let you know when your play has been read and what the outcome of the process is.

If you have any other questions about the process please do email info@hampsteadtheatre.com and we will be happy to help if we can.
