Hampstead Theatre submission window open

Hampstead Theatre is looking for original plays and promising writers. Their annual submission window is now open.

“We want to read engaging stories, writing that takes risks and plays that speak to a modern audience. If the voice is refreshing, or if the play is delivered with power, rigour or wit, we want to read it.”

  • All plays must be unperformed
  • They can only accept one play per writer during the submission window
  • All plays must be full length (roughly speaking over 50 pages)
