Theatre503 Playwriting Award

Theatre503 is the award-winning home of new writers and a launchpad for the artists who bring their words to life. We stage the work of more debut writers than any other theatre in the world and can now announce the re-opening of the Theatre503 Playwriting Award, our bi-annual search for the best new plays and most talented debut playwrights in the world.

The winning play receives £6,000 with a guaranteed production, and we do everything we can do find a home for the four remaining finalists – with all five finalists of the 2018 International Award being premiered at Theatre503 by the end of November 2020. This award is unprecedented in recognising new and emerging writers, for outstanding original pieces of work for the stage that make you see the world anew.

The 2020 Theatre503 International Playwriting Award is for debut writers of all ages who have not yet had a full-length professional production.

AWARD OPENS FOR ENTRIES FROM 1ST FEBRUARY TO 29TH FEBRUARY 2020 VIA THE THEATRE503 WEBSITE.
