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 currently open for Programming submissions from:

  • Producers with an eligible play looking for a full-length (3-week) run in co-production with Theatre503 in 2024/2025
  • Productions of eligible plays looking for a short London run (1 to 4 nights) in 2024

Please 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 in 2024, 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 run for more than 1 night in another London venue.

We do not currently have any availability for short runs remaining in 2024. Please check this page again at a later date.

You can download a Short Runs Total Seater here.
