Below you’ll find a  list of theatres in the UK which accept unsolicited submissions. Some of these theatres accept submissions all year round, others through dedicated script windows.

For competitions, events run by independent theatre companies, or opportunities with deadlines,  please refer to the Opportunities page on the blog.

Other than a link to each theatre’s website, we’ve chosen not to list further information since  guidelines, eligibility, and submission details change all the time (and we’d hate to share inaccurate or outdated information!).

We’d also recommend reading the submissions guidelines in detail and familiarising yourself with the work of each theatre before submitting, and do check out our Submissions Checklist course to make sure your play is polished before you send it. 

This list is work in progress and we’ll be updating it regularly, if you spot somewhere we have missed, we’d welcome an email letting us know (contact@londonplaywrights.org) – and we’ll get it added as soon as we can!
