Submit a Script

The New Writing script submission deadline for 2021 has passed. Thank you to the hundreds of writers who sent us your scripts - our team look forward to reading your plays. We will reopen for submissions in the summer of 2022.

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

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.
