Artistic Director JJ Almond is eager to increase the artistic use of the Shaw Theatre and to support new musicals and new plays.
So the Shaw Theatre are looking for submissions of new plays/musicals (initially a 1 page synopsis and writer’s cv) and applications from producers and directors.
JJ will review the submissions and pair a producer with a play, the producer is then set the challenge of championing a reading of that play. JJ and the producer will work together to select an appropriate director and the Shaw Theatre will initially provide the mezzanine are of the theatre for rehearsals and to present the reading.
This model may also then spread to another theatre that JJ has responsibility for in Milton Keynes.
All submissions should be sent, with a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
