Live Theatre has an international reputation as a new writing theatre. They are on the lookout for outstanding, imaginative story-led ideas to be the recipients of their annual £2500 Bursary.

As well as monetary help, the bursary also includes dramaturgical and producing support. Successful applicants are given the opportunity to perform their pieces as part of Live Theatre’s Festival of new work in 2024.

Although Live Theatre focuses on the North East, applications from elsewhere in the UK are welcome.
