Newport Playgoers Looking For Playwright Talent

Newport Playgoers’ (NPS) new playwriting programme, Scribes, is on the lookout for new play-writing talent.

Dedicated to nurturing and developing aspiring and established playwrights in Wales, Scribes will endeavor to showcase work from playwrights wishing to develop their voices alongside the NPS season through a series of readings, scratch nights, workshops and writers’ events.

To launch to the programme, Scribes is organising a scratch night to showcase new work from Welsh playwrights. The chosen eight plays will be worked and developed by actors and directors from Playgoers. They will then be performed (with scripts) at the NPS studio in The Dolman Theatre on October 14.

Plays can be of any theme (but should cause no offence), have no more than 3 characters, have few props or set requirements and be no longer than 10 minutes, when performed.
Deadline for all submissions should be Midnight on October 9, 2016. Email submissions to
