New Writing

Druid is a writers theatre and has premiered work from both new writers and acclaimed playwrights in a mid-career phase.

Druid’s New Writing window for accepting scripts opens from July to November each year. 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. 

Selected scripts will be read as part of the company’s Druid Debut series each summer, with a view to further development. Druid’s New Writing Associate, Marty Rea, works closely with writers, directors and actors to bring the script to a rehearsed reading stage. Read more about submitting a script here.
