Calling all playwrights! We’re delighted to announce that our script window for Direct Approach 2025 is now open!

We’re seeking 30-40 minute new plays with 4-5 characters to stage in an informal and intimate space at a pub in York in 2025.

Topics explored in past Direct Approach plays have ranged from dystopian futures to homicidal dog walkers, so its a very open brief. But keep in mind these plays will be staged by a new director in a small venue on a small budget and with minimal set.

Please email your script to by 11.59pm on Saturday 31 August 2024. You will receive confirmation that we have received your script.

Any questions, please email us and we’ll do our best to help. We can’t wait to hear from you!
