Theatre Centre is pleased to announce The Brian Way Award, our first open call out for one of our annual commissions.

Named in memory of our founder Brian Way who established Theatre Centre in 1953, The Brian Way Award welcomes expressions of interest on the theme of ‘Treaty’ from professional UK-based playwrights. The commissioned play will then be produced for our flagship national tour of secondary schools and venues in 2019.

We are particularly hopeful the opportunity will encourage writers who may not have considered writing work for young audiences to do so for the first time.

How to apply
Submissions to The Brian Way Award open on Thursday 4th January 2018 and close at midday on Friday 16th February 2018.

Visit the Theatre Centre website for a full information pack, please read this before applying.

We will ask for you to submit:

• An expression of interest exploring why your writing would excite and benefit the TYA sector (no more than 300 words)
• A Writer’s CV
• A Treatment on the theme of Treaty (no more than 2 pages long)
• 10 pages of an existing script that best showcases your talent (does not need to be a play for young people)
• An Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form
