RESIDENCY: 13 – 25 May 2019


There will be two stages to the application process: you must first submit an unproduced play to be read anonymously by their panel of readers so the Tron can get a sense of your writing.

Writers shortlisted through that process will then be invited to come to the Tron Theatre and pitch ideas for three new plays. One writer will then be offered the opportunity to develop one of their ideas as part of their commission and residency.
