The Painkiller Project
One play will be selected each submission window and then released on our podcast (available here).
So far our plays have featured actors such as Tamsin Greig, Jason
Watkins, Noma Dumezweni, Toby Jones, Miriam Margolyes and Jessica
March 2020 the project has played an important role in the development
of numerous emerging playwrights. While established artists have risen

We rely on receiving donations from those who believe in the project. If you would like to donate to the project, or if you know anyone who might want to support it, it would mean the world to us. To do so, there are two options:
You can become a patron to the project through Patreon. This allows you to make a donation that would be repeated each time a new winning play is released, roughly once a fortnight.
Or, you can make a one-off donation through PayPal.me
