Theatre West

new writing

In early 2019 our 'Write On Women' project invited women writers in the region to submit work with the chance of being produced this autumn. We had a brilliant response, receiving submissions from across the South West.

After a lengthy reading process, we shortlisted five scripts:

A panel including representatives from Bristol Old Vic and Cheltenham Everyman met with the shortlisted writers in April and following some intense debates, we are delighted to announce that we have selected Everyone Is Dead by Charlotte Turner-McMullan to produce this autumn.

In May we invited everyone who had been involved in the project to come together for an evening of socialising and to hear from Lucy Catherine, writer for film, television, theatre and radio, who spoke about her career and experience of working in these very different environments.

If you're a writer and would like to hear about future projects and be kept up to date about our work, please email
