Bristol Old Vic- Open Session

Bristol Old Vic’s Literary Department unsolicited script window is now open for new and previously unproduced plays and musicals.

Submissions must be from writers living and working in the South West.  The Bristol Old Vic define this as writers based in the counties of Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Somerset, and the unitary authorities of Bath & North East Somerset, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, Isle of Wight, North Somerset, Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, South Gloucestershire, Southampton, Swindon, Torbay and Wiltshire.

The Bristol Old Vic will give email feedback to the top 15 submissions. These will be chosen based on the work that they feel demonstrates individual flair and complements Bristol Old Vic’s programming. The top plays will be offered bespoke packages of development. These will be created in conversation with the writers selected and this ongoing relationship may lead to commissioning opportunities.



Midnight on 30 Jun.


Writers’ work should be submitted via their online Web Form, and will be judged with the entrant’s identity anonymised. To apply and to submit your script and demo songs please go to
