2015 Open Submissions


Each year, we programme a ten week collection of new work. We believe these collections are vital in discovering new artists and offering people a platform within the theatrical landscape. In offering artistic and producing support and by keeping ticket prices low, we create a safe environment for both artists and audiences to take risks.

We will be programming ten companies through open submissions and giving them The Yard for a one week run of their show between Tuesday 14th April to Saturday 20th June 2015.

Are you a student with a script? An artist with an idea? Maybe you’re a plumber with a play just waiting to be made. We want to hear from you.

Make sure you read our OPEN CALLOUT DOCUMENT. It will tell you more about the collection and how to submit your ideas. If you have any questions, please email info@theyardtheatre.co.uk and we’ll be glad to answer them.

Finally, don’t forget to take a look at what’s on at The Yard this season. The best way to find out more about the work we make here is to come along and see it for yourself.

We look forward to hearing from you.
The Yard Team
