Pitch Your Play

Our Pitch Your Play competition is for young writers (aged 16-30) who have a script they would like to develop. Shortlisted writers get to pitch their play to a panel of industry professionals, and then three winning writers are given free rehearsal space, a paid creative team and a staged reading on the stage at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase their work in a West End venue to an audience of friends, family, colleagues and invited industry professionals.
