If your play has not been selected, remember, this is only the opinion of our readers and other theatre professionals may have a different opinion so please keep writing and putting your work out there to be discovered.

We believe that playwrights play an important role in the world, whether it be highlighting inequality, encouraging debate on social issues or allowing people to be transported to an imagined world, which is why the British Theatre Challenge is so important to us as a company.

If you have any feedback about the running of the competition, we would value your comments.
