Submit a Script for inclusion within our Scripts Spotlight series.
We welcome script submissions for our Scripts Spotlight series from both established and emerging playwrights. To submit a script, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a 1 page cover letter. This should contain a paragraph of your CV as a writer, and a paragraph about the work you are submitting.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
First and foremost – great writing/storytelling. The best advice we ever heard for playwrights is ‘concentrate on the story and the themes will take care of themselves.’
Secondly – we think about whether or not a piece is suitable for a podcast. Something that might be perfect for the stage may not be suitable for a podcast – it’s all about the audio. So a highly visual comedy won’t work on a podcast.
Thirdly – would a London audience be interested in the subject matter?
Fourthly – we are looking for scripts that portray modern urban society in all its complexity, both nationally and internationally.
And fifthly (to rephrase and emphasise the first point) – we enjoy texts that have no apparent ideological content, but that simply tell a human story in an innovative and compelling way.
