28 Plays Later challenge

web site

Deadline: January 28, 2021

Now in its seventh year!

Whether you are into Pinter or Panto, Chekov or Chicago, we are looking to inspire you to achieve theatrical greatness and create new work for the stage.

You know nothing about plays? Fantastic! Everyone starts somewhere, right? Jump right in! You’re an old hand at writing for the stage? Awesome! Each playwriting challenge will take your skills into new, fun and fascinating territory.

Registration is now open - sign up

In response to the effect Covid has had on our industry, we continue to offer our challenges on a commit-what-you-can basis, so everybody is welcome, and no financial obligation is required.

There are two ways in which to take part. Please choose your desired route.

TIMED ROUTE: If you submit a new and complete play every day by 10am, you'll receive a share of the pot, as detailed in our FAQs.

CREATIVE ROUTE: You can submit as and when you wish and won't receive a financial reward at the end.

Regardless of what route you choose, if you submit 28 pieces by the final deadline, you will be an official completer.
