Soho Theatre

Full details

Verity Bargate Award
Our playwriting award is London’s foremost new-writing award with a 37-year history of discovering the best new talent. The winning play receives a full production in our Main House and has launched the career of some of Britain’s most established writers.
Alongside the award winning production company Character 7, our search for the 2020 Award winner is now on. Submissions window is 20 November 2019 – 10 January 2020. Time to get typing.
Writers’ Lab 
Our nine month long programmes run October through June, open to anyone aged 16+. You get to meet other emerging writers and artists as you develop and refine your writing voice through a three-draft process. There are also special masterclasses with guest artists. And discounts to our programmed shows. S’alright init.
Tony Craze Award
One of those gotta-be-in-it-to-win-it Awards, because this one’s for those in our Writers’ Labs. The winner’s play receives workshop development and a reading. Some have had their work produced by us, performed on our stages and received industry and critical acclaim (insert all the applause here).
Soho Six
Our flagship commissioning programme. Focussing exclusively on emerging talent we collaborate with six new writing companies on a year-long co-commission with six artists, culminating in a new play. Alumni have gone on to become major influential names in theatre, film and TV.
Soho Theatre Bar. Which, if we don’t mind saying so, is a rather brilliant and supportive artistic hub in the heart of Soho. Many artists, writers and industry meet here. During the day you can also book the booths in advance for writing (just contact our Bar).
