It is part of the Playwrights' Studio mission to work actively and creatively with playwrights, connecting them with audiences and organisations, for the ultimate enrichment and enjoyment of the people of Scotland and beyond.
One of the clear recommendations of research and consultation commissioned by Playwrights' Studio, and the Scottish Society of Playwrights in 2015 and 2017, is the development of a stronger relationship with the rest of the professional theatre sector for the specific benefit of playwrights. The research also indicates that playwrights based outwith the central belt of Scotland experience particular disadvantage in being able to access development and professional opportunities.
In response to this, have developed two new partnership opportunities:
- National Playwright Development Programme Area (£15,000)
- Partner Projects x 2 (£8,000 each)
