Submit a Script

Our submission window for New Writing runs from July to November each year.

Playwrights who submit a script during this time will have their work reviewed. Scripts received outside of this time will not be considered.

The company accepts plays in the English language from Irish, UK and other European or Europe-based writers. For the purposes of clarity: Druid accepts translations of original plays into English, which meet our criteria.

How It Works

For the open submission process, a reading panel assists the Artistic Director and the New Writing Associate 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.
