Our Write Now Playwrights

For six successive years from 2010, we programmed 19 full-length dramas and 33 shorts as part of our annual new writing festival, Write Now. They presented a rich and vibrant range of theatre voices, with relevant, contemporary and often surprising stories. We are very proud to have premiered these plays at the Jack.

To refresh your memory, or if you were unable to see them the first time around, we have a selection of extracts from these winning plays for you to read.

Each writer’s page also enables you to catch up with the playwright, and find out what they are doing now.

Please click on each writer’s image to access their page.

We hope you enjoy reading!
