Script Submissions

Woman typing

Unfortunately we do not accept unsolicited scripts for consideration for performance at Watford Palace Theatre, because of the scale of the venue and limited staff resources. However, we can offer support for emerging writers in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

You are welcome to register your email address with us to keep you informed of events, workshops and additional information that might be useful to us as a local emerging writer. We will contact you if there is anything we feel may be of interest to you.

If you live in one of these three counties, then you are eligible to submit a full script to us and we can arrange to have it read and a feedback report provided to you. The report will include feedback on plot, characters, dialogue and suitability for performance, as well as possible areas of development.

The report is written by one of our network of literary readers, which is made up of directors, dramaturges and those with experience in working with new writing. This is subject to a payment of £35 towards the costs we incur in arranging this. If you wish to request a report, then please send a hard copy of your script, complete with a cheque for £35 (made payable to Watford Palace Theatre).

You may submit one script to us each year. Please note that the script cannot be returned to you.

To submit your script please send it to:
