how we can help

We read your play, and support you as you develop it into the most fully, clearly and powerfully articulated version of itself.

We focus on everything from the finest details of dialogue and characterisation to the broader structure, form and socio-political context, helping you clarify your play's intention and sharpen its potency before tackling the next draft.

We can also help you position your work within the wider ecology of UK theatre, offering advice and guidance on where to send your play next.

We can support you if you are:

  • submitting a play unsolicited to theatre literary departments

  • entering a play into playwriting competitions

  • sending your play to freelance producers, directors and production companies

  • preparing your play for a reading or period of research and development

  • a novelist, poet or other writer extending your practice into theatre

  • generally a bit stuck on the next draft

We work with playwrights from anywhere in the world, as long as the play is written in English.
