In 2013 Old Vic New Voices commissioned plays that explored topics such as dystopian future governments, the big bang theory and monogamy in gay relationships. They’re looking for writers with big ideas who can tell stories with heart, humour and style.

This year OVNV are looking for one writer to write a play for young people that will tour London Schools in 2015, and two writers to write a play each for adults that will receive a rehearsed reading directed and performed by the most exciting emerging talent that the industry has to offer.

This is a unique opportunity for several emerging writers to be commissioned by one of the world’s leading theatres. Please note that OVNV are looking for proposals rather than completed scripts at this stage.

Deadline for applications is 6pm, Monday 1 September.
