Along with Theatr Clwyd and National Theatre Wales, we’re launching a new initiative to find, develop and produce the best new plays in Wales. Am Ddrama / Play On will enable writers in Wales to connect directly to three of the nation’s biggest producing theatre companies.

We’re assembling a diverse panel of freelance and in-house readers to give feedback on new English-language and Welsh-language work and to match the most promising scripts and playwrights with the company best placed to develop, commission and produce their work, in both languages.

Readers will be engaged for a term of six months and the panel will come together monthly (online) to discuss submitted plays. Readers will be supported with a full induction on reading and report writing for Play On.

Each reader will receive a retainer of £200 per month for up to two days of their time, including the monthly readers’ meeting. Some flexibility is appreciated as more of the readers’ time may be required (and paid for) subject to regular review and the level of submissions, month to month.

The deadline is now closed. We will not be accepting further applications at this time.
