For Writers

Script and Score is looking for writers who are interested in developing a new/existing short play for performance in Autumn 2022.

We are accepting scripts of short plays (no more than 60 minutes) that are complete or in development, based on the theme of HOME. 

Script and Score can offer advice and mentoring on script development, as well as read through and feedback opportunities. It is hoped plays will be ready to perform in Autumn 2022. 

We are able to offer expenses only for any development sessions. Subsequent performances will be paid. 

If you are interested in any of these opportunities please email us with your CV/profile to
