If you have a reading or a production that you would like Arcola to attend please send an invitation to with the subject heading Reading Invitation or Production Invitation. Although we cannot respond positively to all invitations we will endeavour to attend where possible.

Production proposals

Writers – Arcola does not have an in-house literary representative; as such we do not accept unsolicited scripts (except during the PlayWROUGHT submissions window) . We recommend submitting scripts to theatres like the Soho Theatre & Writers Centre, the Bush, the Royal Court or the National Theatre, all of which have proactive literary departments. If you have a new play that is attached to a producer and/or director, they can submit an application below.

Arcola’s main programme is curated by our Artistic Director and Executive Producer.

Producers are welcome to submit a production proposal below. We receive a very high volume of applications, so please bear with us. Unfortunately we are unable to respond to all applicants.
