Community Playmaker is designed to get people of all ages and with all different levels of experience writing and sharing their plays. Oxford Playhouse invites people from across Oxfordshire to have a go at writing a play with our help and encouragement.


How Do I Get Involved?

Oxford Playhouse is looking for budding playwrights of all ages and plays of all forms: short plays, long plays, monologues and duologues! Even if all you’ve written before is a shopping list, we want to read your writing and hear your stories.

To help you get started, we’ve brought together resources and blog posts created by our professional Playhouse Playmaker writers, for you to use and download from our website.

We invite you to send your play to us during June and July 2021. We will read your play within 21 days of its submission, and feedback about how it could be developed further. If you wish to submit a further draft after this point, we’ll be glad to continue our support. And, if you’re happy for us to do so, we’ll share your play on our website so that others can enjoy it too.


How Do I Submit my Play?

Send your play to us at: playmaker@oxfordplayhouse.com. Please use the subject heading ‘Community Playmaker’ when you send your email. Include your name, age and hometown in your email, so that we know who we’re giving our feedback to.
