MEET THE WRITERS

Thank you to everyone who sent their scripts into The Upsetters submissions window.

We received 132 submissions which have been through three stages of reading to select our shortlist and Final Five plays.

We have read so many amazing plays and every play that made our nine play shortlist (and many on our longlist) would be perfectly at home on stage. Unfortunately, we can only select five. Each of these five writers will have their work performed at the Bunker Theatre on Sunday, 9 June 2019 and will receive £50 for their scripts.
