Out of Joint has launched a playwriting prize specifically for new writers who already work in theatre. The prize is an £8,000 commission with the company.
The award is aimed at people who have not previously had a play professionally produced and who have worked in front of house, in administrative roles, on stage, backstage or in any creative capacity for at least two years.
Alongside the commission fee, the prize also includes a development relationship with Out of Joint, of up to 12 months.
The deadline for submissions is March 2.
