Submitting a Play to Fishamble
Fishamble offers dramaturgical support and advice to new and developing playwrights. We welcome manuscript submissions of new, original dramatic work and appreciate the time, effort and the act of creation that goes into writing a play.
Submissions Process On Hold
The submissions process is temporarily paused due to the Covid-19 crisis, as Fishamble looks at how to potentially move forward in a digital format. We ask you to please refrain from sending us your scripts in the meantime.
Guidelines for submitting a play
- Fishamble does not accept scripts by email. Please send script submissions in hard copy only.
- If mailing your script, please DO NOT send it by registered post.
- Fishamble is a new play company, therefore we will only consider plays that have not previously been produced
- Scripts should be bound – stapled/clipped – and all pages must be numbered
- Please include contact details on title page
- Fishamble does not offer a full play response service but if requested, will provide a brief set of comments on the work
- Fishamble encourages the submission of work which is of particular interest to Irish audiences
- Writers should limit themselves to sending Fishamble no more than one script in the calendar year
- Scripts will not be returned unless a SAE is enclosed
Scripts will be acknowledged, read and responded to within a 3 – 6 month period.
