Submit a script

We are not currently accepting scripts for consideration. Please read our update from literary manager,  Matthew, about our plans for writers in the coming years.

In the meantime please see our artist development programme for other opportunities with Middle Child, and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about future projects.

What stories are we interested in?

When submissions are open, we are keen to meet writers who have an interest in the socio-political function of theatre and who are interested in making work which reaches beyond the usual theatre crowd.

While music is a key component of our work, it does not need to be present in a script. See our past work to get an idea of our ‘style’ and interests.

Our associate writers programme has been established not to look to commission new plays, but rather start relationships with new writers instead, so that we can get to know people and their work better and work out how we might collaborate in the future.

Other enquiries

While we are not currently accepting unsolicited scripts, if you have any literary enquiries please e-mail our literary manager, Matthew May.
