Square Peg Scripts is an exciting new playwriting opportunity for neurodivergent writers. If you're passionate about theatre and want to gain experience and develop your skills in writing for performance, we want to hear from you!


Between November 2018 and April 2019, six neurodivergent participants will take part in a series of writing workshops led by established playwrights, and will each work on an original short play. Each participant will be matched with a mentor, and will receive one-to-one support and feedback throughout the writing process. All participants' individual needs will be met, and we'll cover travel and accommodation costs.

The finished scripts will be performed by professional actors in a public showcase in April 2019. 

To be eligible to apply, you must identify as neurodivergent, be aged 18 or over and live in England or Wales. As we want our opportunities to benefit as many different people as possible, Square Peg Scripts is only open to people who have never taken part in a Mainspring Arts project before.

Applications for Square Peg Scripts are now closed - thank you to everyone who applied! We’ll let applicants know whether or not they’ve been successful by 24th October 2018.
