Programming Proposals

Thank you so much for your interest in bringing a production to Theatre503.

We stage around 70 productions a year from 1 night work in progress showings to full length 3-week productions. Around 70% of our programmed work is in partnership with external companies as co-productions.

Please read our script submissions and programming policy to ensure your proposed play and writer are eligible before sending us your script for programming consideration.

We are generally open for Programming submissions from:

  • Producers with an eligible play looking for a full-length (3-week) run in co-production with Theatre503 in 2025
  • Productions of eligible plays looking for a short London run (1 to 4 nights)

Please read the below information in full, and only submit once to either short run OR full-length run consideration. Please do not also submit your script to Unsolicited scripts, as it will not be processed.

You should only submit your script for Programming if you are/have a Producer attached to the project.

If you are a Writer looking for a Producer, please see the Unsolicited section of our Script Reading Policy page.

If you are a Producer interested in hearing more about producing at Theatre503, please contact producing@theatre503.com.

 

SHORT RUNS (1 to 4 nights)

If you are looking to stage a short run of your eligible play, including as part of a tour, please see our availability below and fill in the Short Run Programming Form here. As standard we offer all short runs a 50:50 Box Office split with no hire fees. Please read our script and programming policy in full before applying to check your writer and play fit our eligibility criteria as a debut writer/world premiere production. We are very unlikely to stage your play if it has already or is planned to run for more than 1 night in another London venue.

We currently have no remaining availability for Short Runs in 2024. Keep an eye on this page for 2025 availability.

You can download a Short Runs Total Seater here.

Technical specifications, information and FAQ’s can be found here.

FULL-LENGTH RUNS (3 weeks)

If you are interested in a full-length run (3 week) co-production with Theatre503, please read through the Co-Production Model Overview, and then fill in the Full-Length Run Programming Form here. Please read our script and programming policy in full before applying to check your writer and play fit our eligibility criteria as a debut writer/world premiere production. As our focus for full-length runs is on world premiere productions, we are very unlikely to stage your play if it has already had a run of any length.

We currently have the following availability for potential full-length runs:

  • Tuesday 18th March – Saturday 5th April
  • Tuesday 22nd April – Saturday 10th May 2025
  • Tuesday 20th May – Saturday 7th June 2025
