Apply to the Wellspring Programme

The word 'Wellspring' appears in white letters on a bright red background

We are seeking London-based disabled, Neurodivergent and D/deaf playwrights and script writers to join Wellspring, a new professional development programme.

We are very excited to have teamed up with some of the most important disabled writers working in theatre today; Cheryl Martin, Sophie Woolley, Alex Bulmer and Vici Wreford-Sinnott, giving not only their skills, but also their experience of how their careers were built.

The programme aims to bring disabled artists centre stage. You don’t have to have written a play before, though you are welcome if you have.

All you need is a passion for the world you live in and a curiosity for what words and stories might be within you.

Applications open on Thursday 24 June and close on Thursday 22 July. 


The programme will be delivered in partnership with Paines Plough, the Bush Theatre and Theatre503, and is funded by City Bridge Trust.
