Writers

Any writers who want to submit their play to be performed in one of the Drama Society’s seasons can send in a proposal when applications open and they will be invited to an interview. You can propose to direct your own show or have a director chosen from the Pool.

The Shorts is a particularly good opportunity for writers as it an evening comprised entirely of short plays written by students.

Alternatively, anyone wanting to test out their work in front of a friendly audience can take part in our scratch night social called HIVE. You can submit anything as long as it is no longer than 10 minutes, and you can use the HIVE Facebook group to help you find actors if you need to. It is performed in an informal setting and is a great way to get feedback about your work from your peers.

If you have any queries about submitting new writing, email writing.umds@gmail.com
