New Writing

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. If you have such a play we want to hear from you.

Submitting your work

Our submission window for reading scripts is currently closed, the new submission dates will be available later in the year. Please check back at a later date.

We will be updating our other opportunities for writers shortly, watch this space.
