Do you have a play in development or a first draft in need of some comments?
We accept unsolicited scripts from emerging playwrights and provide detailed feedback of one-to-two sides within a month of submission for £10.00 per script. We are particularly interested in finding work that explores the voices of those not often heard in our society, especially around the themes of disability, diversity and notions of ‘otherness’.
Our feedback looks at structure, character, stagecraft and theatricality, giving you a report on what we feel you may do to take your work forwards and how you can make a good piece of writing great.
Your writing will be read by one of our team.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line – Script Services
About the reading team
Peter Norgate is an experienced playwright and dramaturge. Below are several quotes about his own writing:
SubUrbia “Eric Bogosian’s piercingly witty observations on middle-class malaise and the cold comforts of art are expertly adapted from a US to a very English setting by Peter Norgate.” The Metro
Live a Lotto “I was attracted to the anger and energy and the broadness and boldness of the conceit… I love the idea of reading a play about lottery winners written with such conviction” Simon Stephens playwright of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Herons
Transactions “A tastefully and carefully crafted piece from an experienced playwright… the writer’s artful, poetic style helps breathe fresh life into his premise… Most impressively the writer works hard to choreograph arcs for his characters.” BBC Writersroom
Lavinia Hollands trained as a playwright. She has worked as a dramaturge with Constructive Interference for 6 years’, and their production of Julia was described by the Royal Court as, ‘melancholy and beautifully imagined’ – her work at Camden Peoples theatre was described as ‘funny, intelligent and thought provoking.’
