Discovery Programme

Kali’s free writing programme for aspiring playwrights in the East Midlands, West Midlands and London.

In collaboration with our partners at Birmingham Repertory Theatre , Leicester Curve and London’s Pleasance Theatre

Look out for our open call out in June, inviting aspiring playwrights to submit a 10-page script and join us for a Meet and Greet afternoon at a Hub near you!

Selected writers will receive:

  • 3 playwriting workshops led by leading female practitioners
  • Dramaturgical support to develop their 10-page submission into a 20-minute play
  • A day of rehearsal with actors and director
  • A public staged reading as part of a gala showcase for industry, friends and family
  • A bursary to cover travel expenses and childcare
  • Access to theatre events

DISCOVERY will run from September 2018 to March 2019 and is open to UK based women writers of South Asian descent*. Writers must also be eligible to live and work in the UK.

*At least one parent must be descended from the diasporas of the Indian subcontinent
