Play On: Open call for scripts by playwrights in Wales - National Theatre Wales
Play On: Open call for scripts by playwrights in Wales

Play On / Am Ddrama is a collaboration between Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, Theatr Clwyd and National Theatre Wales to find new and exciting scripts and plays by playwrights based in Wales.

Over the next year, Play On / Am Ddrama will enable playwrights to send their unpublished scripts and plays anonymously to an eager panel of readers for valuable feedback. There may be an opportunity for the most promising scripts to be developed, matching the script and playwright with one of the three organisations best placed to develop, commission and produce it.
