The Open Script Submission is a chance for local writers to connect with Sheffield Theatres, to gain tailored support, advice and learning opportunities for those looking to develop their skills in scriptwriting.

Applicants may be considered for one of the talent development opportunities, or be invited to meet an industry professional from the creative team to discuss your writing and ways in which Sheffield Theatres can support, develop or connect with other talented voices.

Writers will hear the outcome of their submission once we have assessed all of the work, please allow up to five months for this process. Please note that due to limited resources, they are currently unable to offer feedback on all the scripts they receive.


  • Applicants should have a Sheffield postcode or currently live within the Sheffield city region.
  • They especially encourage applications from people underrepresented in theatre currently. This includes but is not limited to people from the Global Majority, Disabled People, LGBTQ+, Parents and Carers.


Sunday 4 September. C

Only one script may be submitted per writer and any length script will be accepted, though we would recommend it be the strongest example of your work, so early drafts are not advisable.
