Contacting the New Work Department

Contacting the New Work Department

Most of the New Work Department’s work takes place by invitation, and we rarely take forward unsolicited proposals.

Whenever possible, we will try to respond positively to invitations to see work. Due to the large number we receive, we ask that you send your information to the New Work Assistant, at least 4-6 weeks before the production takes place. It is a good idea to follow this up with an email reminder the week prior to opening. The Department is keen to see the work of more emerging artists but we have limited capacity, and please understand that we cannot see the work of everyone who approaches the NT. To let us know about opportunities to see or view your work, please send details to the New Work Assistant, Rebecca Thomason.

We are happy to receive and consider unsolicited scripts from the UK and Ireland. We do not accept or consider synopses or treatments, just full script submissions. Scripts should be sent in hard copy with a covering letter to Emily McLaughlin at National Theatre Studio, 83-101 The Cut, London SE1 8LL. We cannot accept submissions by email. Please send any further enquiries to the New Work Administrator, Sarah Clarke.

If you are interested in Director Training opportunities or the Staff Directing programme, please contact New Work Assistant, Rebecca Thomason.

For all other enquiries, please contact New Work Assistant, Rebecca Thomason.
