The play makers...
Box of Tricks makes plays. We champion playwrights and empower them to tell the stories they want to tell. Together, we go on a journey to uncover new plays that reflect the world in which we live today. We create heartfelt theatre that resonates, inspires and entertains.
Since 2006, we have worked with countless playwrights, staging critically-acclaimed new plays right across the UK and taking ambitious new writing to the widest possible audience.
We run three core Playwright programmes:
~ Our PlayMakers Network for Northern playwrights
~ Our New Tricks commissions for future production
~ Our PlayBox initiative for early-career local playwrights.
We continue to search for emerging talent and forge new creative relationships with playwrights. If you’re a playwright who’d like to get in touch, please send an example of your writing – an extract or script – together with an up-to-date writing CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Please note: We operate on a commissioning model, whereby we work closely with playwrights and develop ideas from scratch. We are therefore unlikely to produce unsolicited submissions from writers. Whilst we endeavour to reply to all literary submissions, we are a small team and replies can take up to three months.]
