Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting

The Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting—which seeks scripts from established, emerging and debut writers to develop for the stage—returns next year.

Submissions open next January 2022 along with the announcement of the judging panel. Writers will be encouraged to submit through an anonymous judging process.

Those looking to try their hand at playwriting ahead of submissions opening can find free resources on the writeaplay web site, including workshops from top professionals.

The biennial prize is a partnership between property company Bruntwood, a major supporter of the arts, and the Royal Exchange Theatre, in Manchester.
