Since opening in October 2015 Hope Mill Theatre has been inundated with companies interested in hiring the venue to stage their productions. We have housed many successful new plays over the past year, some independently funded and some ACE funded, all of which have had a great response.
It has become increasingly important for us, as a new and independent theatre, to support original and emerging work focused on the North. We also want to provide a platform on which new work can be staged and to try to encourage the development of a wider audience ready to take a chance on a new play. As a result we decided to launch POWERHOUSE PLAYS – a programme of emerging plays, at all stages of development, either by Northern writers or with strong Northern Themes.
And that’s where you come in! We are now open for submissions for our next POWERHOUSE PLAYS slot, which runs from Tuesday 24th – Friday 27th October. Please note that we do require all companies to cast and rehearse their plays and provide a technician (if the piece requires it). The deadline is Saturday 16th September.
All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
