Following the huge success of our Pitch Your Play scheme in 2018 (in which we received over 170 applications!), we launched The Script Sessions - our very own Play Development/Reading Lab. We host these sessions to get together with actors and read a play extract submitted by a young playwright. The sessions offer Masterclass members the opportunity to hone their table reading skills, and provide an easy way for playwrights to hear their work aloud and get some helpful, friendly feedback.

For the first season of the Script Sessions, we invited back our longlisted playwrights from Pitch Your Play to submit a few scenes from something they are currently working on. We wanted to nurture these writers by providing a more holistic approach to script development, and therefore supporting them whilst they take the next step in their careers.
