Script-Reading Window


We love to discover exciting new writing that explores how we live in Leeds, in Yorkshire and in the world.

Our next script window will be open from 1st to 31st January 2019. We want to hear from writers who are from or who are living in Yorkshire or who feel a particular connection to Leeds Playhouse and our programme.

We use the script window to meet playwrights and develop new relationships. Many of the writers currently engaged with our artist development activity have first made contact through the script window.

So we can process, read and respond to all the scripts we receive, our script windows have specific criteria, so please read the guidelines below carefully before submitting your work:

  • Scripts are submitted via an online form which will open between 1 and 31 January 2019.
  • Please submit scripts in PDF or Word format.
  • We can read one play per writer, per calendar year.
  • We are happy to accept scripts of any length, written for audiences of any age.

Script Submission

  • Accepted file types: doc, docx, pdf.
