Complete the form here to submit your script for the November 2022 residency.
The submission box closes on 22 Oct 2022 (12pm) or when the first 6 scripts are received, whichever is earlier.
Every other month, the New Scripts Residency provides three scripts with considered dramaturgical support in the form of either a facilitated table read or one-on-one dramaturgy sessions with our Writer in Residence. If you have a script that you want to take forward to the next draft, this residency is ideal for you.
Playwrights who submit their script(s) for this cycle must be able to attend the Table Read in person, scheduled for Monday 28 November 2022.
Because of our current reading capacity, we will only consider the first six eligible scripts that come into our inbox at closing time. These six scripts will be handed over to the team of readers, made up of directors, playwrights, and dramaturgs, who will consider the submissions. Based on the quality of the script, its stage of development, and the writer's needs as expressed in the application form, they will then recommend either a table read or one-on-one dramaturgy sessions with our Writer in Residence.
The table read will be organised by Centre 42, who will invite actors, writers, directors, and dramaturgs from a pool of artists we have been working closely with on this programme. The scripts receiving one-on-one dramaturgy will be scheduled directly with our Writer in Residence, who will read the scripts and provide detailed feedback in discussion with the writer. Scripts that were not shortlisted will receive written feedback from the reading team and writers are welcome to submit subsequent drafts for future iterations.
This programme prioritises writer development over polish, and aims to get the writer excited to work on the next draft of their script, with a clearer sense of where to go.
