Original Reads: An irregular reading group hosted by Original Theatre Company.
Original Reads help to develop new artists, new audiences and new productions. We all come together and we all read. Simple.

Please note Original Reads are not auditions, they are not performances. They are not judgment panels or discussion groups. And they are not ways into being cast in Original’s work. We read to inspire the Original programme, to inform the Original programme, or just becasuse we’d like to hear the play.
Written a great script you think we’d like to produce?
Original Theatre Company have an in-house Literary Panel who read play submissions from writers both known and unknown to the company.
All suitable scripts submitted to [email protected] will be read by our panel, with an aim to email feedback to writers within 6-8 weeks. (We are currently a small team so please do bear with us!)
If the panel feel your play is of interest, we may arrange an informal Original Reads session with our AD and producers in attendance to hear it out loud, and discuss future development.
Before submitting your play to OTC, please make sure you’ve looked at our guidelines below:
Guidelines for Playwrights
Please send your script and a brief introduction of yourself to [email protected]. We look forward to reading your work!Go back
