for writers and readers….
‘Wright’ is an archaic English term for a craftsman (as in shipwright or cartwright). A playwright is someone who has wrought words into a dramatic form; she/ he is someone who crafts a play. Most unsolicited plays sent to new writing theatres arrive at the Literary Department – and the first hurdle is the theatre’s script readers. Other routes into production exist, yet putting on your own work or seeking ventures outside of London’s various bastions of drama is no mean feat.
