Want to write a new play?

Soho Theatre has played a unique and award-winning role in the development of new writing in Britain for more than 40 years.

If you’re aged 16-26 our Writers’ Lab gives you the chance to develop and refine your writing voice.

Meeting once a month, on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays from 14 October to June, each Lab session offers support, motivation and guidance from our course leaders and members of Soho’s Artistic Team.

The course is designed to help writers create a new full length play/piece of theatre over a 9 month, 3 draft, process to submit to our prestigious
Tony Craze Award.

Previous winners include:
Birthright by Adam Narat (2016)
Fury by Phoebe Eclair-Powell (2015)
A Life of Cardboard by Iskandar Sharazuddin (2014)
In Your Image by Gemma Copping (2013)
Bitch Boxer by Charlotte Josephine (2012)
