Discover your inner playwright!

Are you an aspiring playwright, female, and of South Asian descent?

Do you live in the East Midlands?

If so, then check out DISCOVERY, our new writer development programme being run in conjunction with Kali Theatre.

DISCOVERY will be finding talented, emerging playwrights of any age.

Selected writers will receive:
• 3 playwriting workshops led by leading female practitioners
• Dramaturgical support to develop their 10-page submission into a 20-minute play
• A day of rehearsal with actors and director
• Two public performances of a staged reading as part of a gala showcase for industry, friends and family
• A bursary towards travel expenses and childcare
• Access to theatre events

DISCOVERY will run from September 2018 to March 2019

It is open to UK based women writers of South Asian descent* who are eligible to live and work in the UK, and who have not had a play presented as a full production. No previous playwriting experience is necessary.


To apply, you need to send us a 10-page script and a little information about you

Deadline for this is Tue 24 Jul

Full details on how to apply here.

Come and find out more

We are holding an Introductory Workshop on Sat 23 Jun here at Curve.

You don’t have to come to this in order to apply but it will be a chance to meet the team and find out more. Kali will run a short informal playwriting session. Feel free to bring work in progress to discuss.
