New work

We commission and develop a wealth of new work. Our creative culture inspires writers to experiment with new ideas. It also allows us to investigate the classics with a fresh, inventive eye.

We encourage our playwrights to write large-scale, ambitious plays and to put death, beauty and metaphor back on stage.

We've just published Radical Mischief - our newspaper for new work. This first edition chronicles the projects we are currently developing and some of the plans we have for The Other Place and other new work in the region and beyond.

Radical Mischief will be published twice a year and is free.


Script policy
We do not accept unsolicited scripts but we closely monitor new work on the fringe and across the UK.

 The RSC Literary Department is generously supported by THE DRUE HEINZ TRUST.
