More about the Verity Bargate Award:

Named after the company's founding Artistic Director, the playwriting award for the outsider has always sought extraordinary voices and unique styles which stand out from the crowd and tell inspiring unheard stories. In search for the best first time and emerging UK playwright, the Award is open to writers with fewer than three professional productions. Dedicated to championing distinctive writing and nurturing new talent, we advocate early commitment to making a vital difference to the long-term career of a writer, particularly when pathways to production and theatres can feel like closed shops.  Click here to see how to apply.
