Playwrights

HighTide is a home for East of England playwrights.

Script submissions

Script submissions for the HighTide Writers Group closed in late October, so we’re not currently accepting scripts for reading. Please check back on this page, keep an eye out on our social media, or join our playwright development network – Playwrights East – by emailing [email protected].uk to hear about opportunities in the future.

Write Your Own Ghost Story!

We’ve produced a handy toolkit for writing ghost stories.. Once you’ve read it, why not try writing your own? Send them to [email protected] by the 19th December and we’ll select the spookiest to be audio-recorded by professional actors and shared online. Come and have a go… if you think you’re scary enough.
