Playwrought is now closed. Please check back for further announcements.

Our celebrated Playwrought programme, championing new writing and voices, is returning. Over the course of the year, we will select twelve scripts from a series of monthly Script Windows.

All submitted scripts will be read by a member of Arcola staff, and one script will be selected to receive:

  • Pairing with a director and cast
  • R&D space for one day, followed by a reading at Arcola

We are looking for unique voices that have not been heard before. Previously produced shows include Clarion by Mark Jagasia, Combustion by Asif Khan, Scenes from 68* Years by Hannah Khalil and Love, Bombs, and Apples by Hassan Abdulrazzak, which have all premiered at Arcola.
