Druid Theatre seeks scripts

web site

Please note that we are accepting scripts for 2017 from 28th July to 30th November via online submission form only. 

Playwrights who submit a script during the submission window will have their work reviewed. Scripts received outside of this time will not be considered. Scripts must be submitted via an online form - scripts sent via email, post or other means will not be accepted.

The company accepts plays in the English language. For the purposes of clarity: Druid accepts translations of original plays into English, which meet our criteria.

Please ensure you have read our guidelines before submitting your script.

How It Works

For the open submission process, a reading panel assists the Artistic Director in assessing your play and ensures that a range of perspectives are brought to bear on each submission.

While Druid gives consideration to all plays submitted within the allotted period, we are not in a position to give a detailed a response to each.

The open submission process takes place alongside commissions, workshops, mentoring, public readings and other playwright development initiatives as part of Druid’s commitment to bring new work into production.

Should you have any further questions, email info@druid.ie.
Please do not use the above email address to submit a script.

· Submit only one script per year unless requested.

· Submit original work only.

· Submit only those plays that have not had a full professional or amateur production. In this light, plays emerging from student productions or from a reading/workshop will be accepted.

Writers whose work has previously been produced by amateur theatre companies are asked to submit only those plays that are not currently intended for production.

·Druid is not in a position to accept radio scripts, TV scripts or screenplays.

·Druid is not in a position to accept one-act plays or plays for children.

·Scripts must be submitted as a finished draft (see Formating Guidelines below) and will be assessed on that understanding. 

Synopses or treatments are accepted if submitted with an accompanying complete script.
