Script This – A service for new plays by new voices.


Script This – 22nd March 2017



‘Script This’ looks to work with playwrights that offer a strong and commanding new voice towards producing new plays. Up to six short plays or extracts of longer scripts (10 minutes in length) are selected to produce a vibrant evening of rehearsed readings of new work at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre in Lincoln.
‘Script This’ aims to help with the process of constructing new plays. All of our selected writers are invited to the Lincoln Performing Arts centre to participate in seeing their work performed to a live audience by our team of professional actors and directors, with each individual reading including a feedback discussion…Some of our previous writers have been invited to stage their work with us at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, whist in other instances some of our featured writers have been invited back to partake in the annual ‘Newvolutions’ new work festival.



Please send your ten minute extracts, along with your name and contact details to
