New Writing
The White Bear aren't currently accepting script submissions due to a high volume after Covid closure.
We will be reopening this service shortly, and you can still get in touch about theatre hires and any further queries.

White Bear Theatre welcomes the submission of unsolicited scripts.  


These can be sent to:

The Literary Department
White Bear Theatre
138 Kennington Park Road
SE11 4DJ

If you need to have the script returned then we would ask that you enclose a self-addressed and stamped envelope.

Scripts will normally be read within a Four Month period by one of our readers and feedback will be provided.  In the event of our wanting to develop the script further, either in the form of a script surgery, rehearsed reading, or full production, the writer/production company will be contacted to discuss a possible meeting.

White Bear Theatre is committed to seeking out the country’s future playwrights and working with them over a sustained period of time to nurture and develop their talents.

We are open to any style of script (farce, tragedy, horror, etc.) and are especially interested in scripts that portray modern urban society in all its complexity, dealing with issues that are pertinent to the diverse communities that we belong to, both nationally and internationally.  We also welcome texts that have no apparent political or ideological content, but that tell a human story in an innovative and compelling way.

Any queries can be sent to whitebearliterary[@]
