We are looking to find the best new plays in the region and the country. We are seeking work which is bold, passionate and enriching, 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.
