The Startup by Dhanush Giridhar

Script Sessions


June 04, 2024


11.00am - 12.30pm



The Startup looks at international students in their final year of university in the UK, navigating the confusion and anxieties of their student visa expiring - and explores how their aspirations of continuing to stay in the UK is continuously challenged, culminating in a final pitch in an entrepreneurial competition at the hopes of gaining the coveted 'Startup Visa'.

This Script Session is currently full. However you can apply for future sessions here.

Content warnings: This play deals with themes of discrimination.

Script Sessions give playwrights the opportunity to meet with other young creatives and receive feedback on their scripts.

These very relaxed and informal sessions give playwrights valuable early feedback, while young actors get to practice their table reading skills, directors can share their vision for the piece and designers create quick response sketches. It's a great chance to network with other creatives, and give feedback on new work.
