We’re dedicated to finding, nurturing and supporting writers from all ages, backgrounds and experience levels to help realise the key aim of getting their work from script to stage.

The 503 Studio is a year round programme of writer and creative development for early career playwrights, as well anyone wanting to start writing.

We offer a variety of options depending on where you are in your creative journey to help you find your voice, develop your craft and begin a relationship with our Literary Team.

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis we are operating a slimmed down programme. We are also in the process of reviewing and updating all our programmes, so these pages will be developed and expanded in the coming weeks and month

We’re interested in reading scripts from any writer who is yet to have a full-length play that has been professionally produced for four weeks or more in a subsidised/commercial  London venue and/or a major regional or international venue. We apply this criteria to all script submissions: Unsolicited, Playwriting Award, Rapid Write Response and the 503Five.

We are more than happy to read submissions and proposals sent by agents on behalf of their clients, through our Unsolicited script reading process. However, we will only accept submissions from individual writers for the Playwriting Award, 503Five and Rapid Write Response.
