This is a general introduction so we can get to know you. You will see your play on it’s feet and just what a director would do with it.

Please make sure your submission has a cast list at the top with ages and gender, where needed. Write a short synopsis of the performance and anything else you think might persuade us to pick your work.

Please make sure you give us full contact details including phone number.

There will be more opportunities like this, over the next few months, with Luke Sookdeo and Molly Farquhar (I am Purple)

The studio has no disabled access but do let us know and we can arrange a zoom reading at another time, should our director be interested in your play.
