Pitch Your Play 2018HOW IT WILL WORK
The Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust’s Pitch Your Play scheme returns, inviting you to pitch a new play to a panel of industry professionals. Three successful pitches will be given space, admin and marketing support for 4 weeks here at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, working with the Masterclass team to produce your staged reading. In addition, each winning team will receive one weeks access to our West End stage in order to rehearse and stage your reading. This will culminate in an exclusive opportunity to showcase your work in a West End venue to an audience of friends, family, colleagues and invited industry professionals.Applications for Pitch Your Play 2018 are now closed.
