Write to Play
Developing and producing new work is at the heart of what Graeae does. We are always on the lookout for new and exciting voices and stories. Read more...
Our flagship writer development programme Write to Play nurtures and develops five new writers each year, in partnership with some of the most exciting new writing theatres in the UK.
Running alongside Write to Play, Play Labs offer artists a one-day opportunity to explore an idea in an early phase of development, while Play Chats offer writers at the beginning of their career the chance to find out more about playwriting and how to begin to grow their ideas.
Recent commissions include work from Jo Clifford, Jack Thorne, David Ireland, Mike Kenny and Matilda Ibini among others. The work has taken many forms – from new writing to adaptations to outdoor work to new plays for young performers.
