The Script Panel

Applications for the 2019 Script Panel are now closed.

The Script Panel is made up of 20 people and is for those who are interested in the development of  new plays. The weekly sessions provide a space for reflective discussion and analysis of plays. You will learn how to write script reports and how to provide positive, critical feedback to writers.

As part of our Script Panel, participants will:

  • Learn about dramaturgy and writer development
  • Learn about script reports and develop the skills needed to craft one
  • See theatre for free at the Royal Court and different theatres across London.
  • Read a range of plays at different stages of development, and start fostering a dialogue about these plays.
  • Creatively engage with professionals such as writers, directors, designers and dramaturgs, learn how they work with and think about playtexts

We run our Script Panel twice a year, once as part of our Young Agitators 18-25 yrs programme and the secondly via a public call out for all age groups. No previous experience of dramaturgy is necessary, just an interest in new writing.

Following The Script Panel, participants will be invited to join an invitational group that will offer further training and opportunities to develop dramaturgical skills.
