dg resource directory
The act of submitting creative work for a dramatist is as necessary as finishing it. But the process of finding the right submission opportunity can feel overwhelming. This is why, for more than 20 years, the Dramatists Guild has compiled a submissions and opportunities database, and published a full directory of theatres, agents, festivals, contests, workshops, retreats, and other submission opportunities to help make the life of the dramatist an easier one.

This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.  

Only active members or subscribers of the Guild may use the Resource Directory.

  • Tablespoon Theatre is an independent company specialising in new writing and physical performance. Born out of an original play staged in 2018, we are a Glasgow based collective creating and producing performing arts events across the city. Tablespoon Theatre performances seek to experiment with physicality, ensemble, and original composition to create immersive and truly artist-led work. Guided by virtues of inclusivity and creativity we operate largely through open-call outs, with the aim to collaborate and pursue cross-disciplinary work with every project. Tablespoon Theatre is a community...
  • As part of our commitment to creating space in the city of Edinburgh for new work by emerging Scottish and Scotland-based artists and companies, we are seeking proposals for live performances from theatre, comedy, dance, spoken word, performance art and inter-disciplinary artists based in Scotland who are looking for spaces to make bold new work which explores and tests the boundaries of live performance.
  • Northern Stage is a registered charity. A theatre where ideas meet and futures change - where we reach beyond the ordinary every time. Every year thousands come to create and share unique live experiences at Northern Stage. Our home in Newcastle is an inspirational and creative place (with a mean cafe/bar) that belongs to you. Everyone is welcome.

  • Mission: To be a touring theatre without peer, anchored in the West of Ireland and looking to the world, producing and presenting the best work, both new and old, with boldness, agility, passion and flair. The aim of the New Writing process in Druid is to find new writers and voices that can be nourished rather than a finished polished piece of work. Druid looks forward to collaborating, guiding and nurturing writers, building a relationship with those voices who will grace our stages for years to come.
  • Fishamble is an Irish theatre company that is passionate about discovering, developing and producing new plays. ​ Formed in 1988, it is named after the Playhouse on Dublin’s Fishamble Street which, in the 1780s, became the first theatre to commission and produce plays by Irish writers.
  • Our Vision is to have a warm, welcoming theatre that is much-loved by audiences, providing Memorable, Meaningful Nights Out through Great Stories. We envisage providing this through outstanding writing and electric acting, in a 3-play summer season made up of a world premiere new play, a rediscovered great play and a world premiere adaptation — plus our annual NEWvember Festival and workshops developing new plays, special events including our family-friendly Christmas show, and inviting programming such as our Great Plays Gang.
  • Inspired by the revolutionary ideals of our founders and our rich canon of Irish dramatic writing, our mission is to imaginatively engage with all of Irish society through the production of ambitious, courageous and new theatre in all its forms. We commit to lead in the telling of the whole Irish story, in English and in Irish, and we affirm that the Abbey is a theatre for the entire island of Ireland and for all its people. In every endeavour, we promote inclusiveness, diversity and equality. Is é ár misean, faoi inspioráid idéil réabhlóideacha ár mbunaitheoirí agus ár gcanóin shaibhir...
