Playwrights' Competition Calendar

31st December

Hamstead Theatre Submission Window

Hampstead Theatre is looking for original plays and promising writers. We want to read bold stories, writing that takes risks and plays that speak to a modern audience. If the voice is refreshing, or if the play is delivered with power, rigour or wit, we want to read it.

Before you submit a script to us, we encourage you to familiarise yourself with our current work; come and see the plays being produced at our Main Stage and Downstairs spaces, look at our archive and check out our shop. This should give you a better idea of what we are looking for, what we find exciting and what our audiences are engaging with.

Please send your scripts in PDF format by email to and include in your email a synopsis and short covering note telling us about you and why your play is right for Hampstead.

Please note, we are unable to receive or read unsolicited scripts that are:

*Sent to us by post
*Sent outside of the submission period (the submission period is 1 July – 31 December each year)
*Less than 50 Pages
*Not a PDF
*Have been previously produced
*From writers outside of the UK
*That have previously been submitted to us

We also are unable to read more than one script from a writer at a time.
