Jobs & Opportunities

Spring Fringe Script

For the first time ever, The Other Room are running an open script submission. For this one event only we are welcoming writers to submit any full length, one act play (60 - 80 minutes in length). From the submissions a single script will be chosen as the Spring Fringe Script, and given a rehearsed reading in The Other Room on March 15, directed by our very own Artistic Director, Dan Jones.

SCRIPT SUBMISSIONS: Please email your script and a short covering letter introducing yourself to by FRIDAY 8th at 5pm.

We are also looking for a team of voluntary SCRIPT READERS to help us find our Spring Fringe Script. This opportunity is ideal for early career directors who want to practice their craft, improve their critical eye and discover new playwrights, but we'll be accepting expressions of interest from anyone with an interest in script reading. To be considered as a SCRIPT READER please email, introducing yourself, your experience and why you are interested in volunteering.

Rehearsed Reading March 15 @ 7:30pm


At least once a year we open our doors with a series of open auditions and open meetings for creative profesionals.

Applications for OpenRoom are now closed.
