pitch your play

Are you a writer, director or producer?

Our Pitch Your Play scheme invites young theatre makers (aged 16-30) to pitch a new play to a panel of industry professionals. Three successful pitches are given the exclusive opportunity to stage a rehearsed reading on a West End stage, showcasing their work to an audience of friends, family, colleagues and invited industry professionals. In addition, we provide admin & marketing support and office space here at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for four weeks, working with the Masterclass team to produce the staged reading.

How to Apply

Submissions for Pitch Your Play are currently closed.
