Theatre503 is the home of new writers and new writing, and a launchpad for all those who help bring that writing to life onstage.
Every year we receive, read and respond to over 1000 unsolicited scripts and from these over 100 new plays are performed at Theatre503 – that’s 100 writers, 100 directors, up to four times as many actors and countless designers, technicians and production companies all aided by our team in taking that professional step up to excellence. On alternate years we select the winner of our international Playwriting Award from over 1600 submissions, or find the next 503Five, our pioneering writer’s residency. We’ve launched the careers of Jon Brittain, Katori Hall, Charlene James, Anna Jordan, Tom Morton-Smith, Vinay Patel – the list goes on!
We want to do more! We want to support more writers and more companies to create the extraordinary work that fuels the future of theatre. We can make that happen now; with your help.
