We are looking to find the best new plays in the region and the country. We are seeking work which is bold, brilliant and essential, for plays which reflect the here and now, writing from unique voices with original perspectives, based around ideas not often explored, stories that are at home not only in our city but on our stages here at Sheffield Theatres. If you have such a play we want to hear from you.
Submitting Your Scripts
Our script submission window is currently closed and will be opening again in Spring 2020, we do not have the capacity to accept scripts outside the submission window. Sign up to the Making Room Newsletter to be updated on when the window opens as well as other opportunities for writers and other artists across the region.
