Every year the Traverse Theatre open script submissions window seeking bold, brilliant, innovative new plays.
As Scotland’s only theatre wholly dedicated to new writing, they strive to discover, nurture and produce the brightest new voices across Scotland, the UK and Ireland.
They’re looking for stories exploring big ideas with as much heart as head and for writers that have something new to say about the world today. Whether you’re an established playwright or a first-time writer with a brilliant story, they want to hear from you!
Open Submissions breaks down the boundaries, allowing your work to be shared with us. That work is read anonymously, which allows them to focus solely on the story you have to tell.
They particularly encourage submissions from voices and communities which are under-represented in theatre — both onstage and off.
Open Submissions will re-open 1 September 2020 – 31 October 2020.
