HighTide Festival 2016

Playwriting

HighTide is an engine room for discovering new playwrights and producing their plays, and we're internationally renowned for doing so. We're passionate about making new theatre, and we continue to commit to the development, production, and advocacy for exceptional new voices in the UK and internationally.

We pride ourselves on discovering new playwrights and giving their play a world-class production. We currently run two annual schemes for emerging writers, our Annual Play Submissions where writers of any age, background and experience can submit a play to HighTide for consideration at the next year's Festival, and our First Commissions scheme, where writers under the age of 30 can submit a proposal to develop a new play with us over 18 months.

You can find out more about each of these schemes by clicking the links to your left.
