Playwrights' Competition Calendar


In Good Company.

Filed under: New Competitions — Gina @ 22:00

There’s a new competition from The Company(specialists in site-specific theatre in Sussex). In association with the Steyning Festival, they’re looking for 6 unperformed plays (maximum length 40 mins), from playwrights in the South East, for the hugely successful Steyning Festival Theatre Trails. The plays will be performed by professional actors as rehearsed readings, at different site-specific venues in Steyning, as part of the  Festival on 27th May & 10th June 2012. Details in December.

I can’t find The Company’s web address so if anyone knows it let me know.

There’s a nice article by a new Australian playwright on the Fresh Ink blog about seeing your work on stage. Also, if you know any Aussie writers there are a couple of opportunities at the bottom of the page.

Speaking of writing abroad I’ve recently found The Playwright’s Center website in America which has a great opportunities page if you’re interested. Or not. Whatever.



  1. The Company’s website is being created at the moment.
    The Company have been going for 5 years, and have been commissioned all over Sussex to create site-specific work. At the moment they are in the middle of 5 commissions for the Weald Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme. They will be performing this weekend (17th & 18th Sept) a new show called “Where be Dragons” at the St Leonard’s Forest, which is sold out, and their Christmas show, “Up in Smoke” will be performed on a a steam train coming out of Tunbridge Wells.
