We launched Pitch Your Play in 2013 to foster and nurture the work of emerging writers, directors, producers and actors.
Our Pitch Your Play scheme invites young theatre makers to pitch their script to the Masterclass team and leading industry experts for the opportunity to have their work staged as a rehearsed reading at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in front of an invited industry audience. Once the winning scripts have been selected we work alongside each team at Masterclass HQ, offering them support and guidance across a five week period leading up to the final showcase.
This year our winning scripts are Shakespeare’s Sister by Emma Whipday, Hilldrop by Joel Samuels and Arthur by Ben Weatherill.
News of Pitch Your Play applications will be announced later this year…The Masterclass Pitch Your Play Scheme is generously supported by The Noël Coward Foundation and the Vernon Charitable Trust
