We very rarely have the means to produce unsolicited new plays. The Long Play Competition is our way of accepting unsolicited scripts. If you wish to discuss a creative idea outside of the competition, please make contact with our Artistic Director, Jack McNamara, with an introductory email and a short example of your work.
