Fishamble currently accepting plays

Deadline: April 30, 2023

​​Fishamble welcomes submissions of new, original, dramatic work, and appreciates the imagination, time, and effort that goes into writing a play.

Please limit your submissions to two plays per submission window.

We aim to reply to all submissions within 6 months. ​​

In 2021, Fishamble moved its script submissions system online. We hope, by doing this, to:
  • discover new voices;
  • allow greater accessibility;
  • offer some thoughts and guidance as to how best develop your play;
  • where appropriate, offer some thoughts as to how you might pursue your writing/project further.​
Fishamble seeks to tell stories of Ireland, and to engage with a wide range of communities, through discovering, developing and producing plays by Irish writers, and writers living on the island of Ireland. It aims to explore contemporary Ireland through bringing a diverse range of voices to the stage.

Fishamble is committed to gender equality and produces equal number of plays by men and women, as well as engaging with works by non-binary writers.

Fishamble is committed to inclusion and diversity in supporting and commissioning artists without regard to race, religion, colour, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, neurodiversity, physical disability, linguistic background, socio-economic status.

Finally, Fishamble aims to facilitate the development of new Irish plays, and welcomes work written either entirely in Irish, or that engage meaningfully with the language.
