Bush Theatre submissions window (proposals only!) opens today

The Bush Theatre’s Autumn/Winter submission window will be open from 21st November 2013 and closes at 5pm on 20th December 2013.  In an interesting twist, the Bush is only looking for proposals for developing work, part of their efforts to reach out to a wider range of theatremakers.  (This is in line with recent changes to their submissions procedure, which you can read more about here.  But don’t fret, they will reopen to submissions of fully drafted scripts from unrepresented writers sometime in the spring.)

What to submit:   They are looking for:

  • Proposals of a story outline, of no more than two pages of A4
  • Examples of previous work (links or attachments to online video, photographs or text samples no more than 2MB)
  • Details of who will be making the work (bios for each creative)

Full details can be found on their website.  But remember, in their own words:

“PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING FULLY WRITTEN OR DEVELOPED SCRIPTS THROUGH THIS SUBMISSIONS WINDOW.”

How to apply:  During this period, please email your proposals to scripts@bushtheatre.co.uk and include, as a separate attachment, a fully completed cover sheet which you can download here.

About the reading process:  The Bush will read all eligible proposals submitted to us through our submission windows and they will contact any writer or theatre maker / company who has submitted a proposal that they would like to produce or develop, inviting them to engage in a bespoke development process.  The Bush doesn’t offer feedback on proposals that we are not intending to produce or develop, although they will contact you to let you know when we have read your application; this will usually be within 4 to 6 months from the end of each submission window.

Deadline:  20 December 2013  (Submissions open 21 November 2013)

Bush Theatre seeking readers

The Bush Theatre seeks a number of critically minded, enthusiastic and opinionated BushGreen Readers to aid with their winter script submission process. This post will play a key role in evaluating the unsolicited scripts submitted by new writers and identifying potentially interesting work.

You would be working with a team of readers on a freelance basis for the Autumn/Winter submissions window. Your engagement would last until April 2015 or until all the scripts for this window have been read.

This search for new writing is part of why we have biannual unsolicited script submissions. It creates an opportunity for first time writers to have their scripts read and reported on. The BushGreen Readers play a major part in getting this work read and giving the writers a fair chance of creating a dialogue with the theatre.

How to apply:  You can download the Application Information and Equal Opportunities Pack from their website.

Deadline:  15 November 2013
