As part of the Theatre503 Writers’ Programme, we are now offering a year round 1-2-1 dramaturgy session to give detailed feedback on your full length script and its potential development.
It mainly covers the costs of our part time freelance team to be able to spend 3 hours reading your script, and up to 2 hours giving you feedback. There is also the cost of administering the 1-2-1 Dramaturgy service all year round. Anyone who cannot cover these costs, please do get in touch to discuss our Share the Drama scheme.
The 1-2-1 dramaturgy session is a conversation, not a one-way street of notes – where your input is equally valuable. That way we can gain a better understanding of your intentions and motives, and you can respond to notes – to question and clarify in the moment. We need to hear and involve you, as script development needs to be collaboration to achieve the best results.
Our unsolicited script reading system means anyone can submit a script and have it read for free. However, as we receive more than 2,000 scripts and programming proposals a year, it can take up to 6 months to get a response and we are unable to give detailed feedback on those scripts.
It’s very important to us that any decision around taking a script forward to consideration for a programming/full production is separate from any of our paid services as part of the Online Writers’ Programme. We may recommend and/or signpost next steps but we cannot offer anything else.
