Open Exchange Bruntwood Prize support sessions

Regardless of whether you’ve just graduated or are a seasoned theatre maker, everyone needs advice from time to time and we’ve got a wealth of experienced staff on hand here at the Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester.

Once a month, members of our creative, backstage and technical teams will move their offices to The Rivals Cafe in the Great Hall and welcome any Open Exchange members to drop in and ask those burning questions.


On TUE 23 APRIL 2019, 10.00AM-1.00PM join…..

Chloe Smith (Bruntwood Prize Coordinator)

If you have any questions on how/where/what to submit, rules & regulations, the new Awards structure. The Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting is a genuine endeavor to discover new stories and help playwrights develop their craft, providing everybody and anybody with the opportunity to write a play – so Chloe can help point you to the rich amount of resources the Prize has gathered on the website over the years.

and  Suzanne Bell (Dramaturg)…

If you have any questions about your work, your ideas, writing that first play, making the transition from a different art form (poetry / prose / spoken word) to writing for the stage, the development process, what support we can offer, then come in and speak with Suzanne. She’ll endeavour to provide some bespoke tips and reflections as well as guide you to wider support available on the website.
