Resident Playwright 2019

Writers based in South-West England (Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Scilly Isles, Somerset or Wiltshire) are invited to apply to be Papatango’s 2019 Resident Playwright, as part of our WriteWest programme.

The Resident will receive a commission of £6,500 to write a new play, with R&D support and mentoring from leading theatre-makers across the region. No professional experience is required – just a pitch for the story you want to write and a sample of your writing.

How to apply

The residency is now closed for applications. We will be in touch with all applicants shortly.
